Is a bsa bantam d7 175cc 7bhp learner legal?
Asked in Peugeot 106
You want more power from your peugeot 106 xn you have an induction kit what else can you do?
Install a v10 viper engine in the boot, would be a sweet project but expensive! try upgrading the exhaust system, a straight through from the cat would help airflow, you could also consider getting a de-cat pipe. this would probably see an increase of 4-7bhp depending on the model, be carefull though as removing the cat will make you car illegal! taking out the back seats will see you off the line a bit quicker, although this is the only single advantage of doing this. after that you should probably sort sum new stiffer springs/or a whole new suspension kit. some wider wheels will see you stick to the road round the corners better. then maybe some uprated cams, an engine remap, bigger brakes. hope you have some cash!!!!
What is the estimated cost of BSA bantam mid 1950s?
In August of 1961 I purchased my first motorcycle, a 1961 BSA Bantam D1 125cc. This was bought new in Jacksonville, Florida from (at that time) Rick's BSA dealership. The price for a 1961 BSA 125cc Bantam was $269 plus sales taxes. The motorcycle did not have, nor have provisions for a stop light, only the single filament tail light was used. Using this as a guide, I would then assume the mid 50's price would be in the lower (US 200) dollar range, perhaps near $225 US dollars? The 125cc cave numerous transmission woes, was traded in for a 1961 175cc Super Bantam, the retail for that best I can remember was $359 US. Therefore I would assume the D7 Super Bantam to be in the lower $300 US dollar range in the mid 50's. For yeards I have searched for either a 1961 125cc D1 or 175cc D7 Bantam. I trust this will assist in obtaining a suggested retail price for the mid 50's D1 and/or D7 Bantam.
