BSA Bantam Championship Winning Race Bike

  • Sale
  • Regular price $3,895.00


The old gentleman I purchased this from stated that this was ridden to an Australian championship by Matt Daly.  The bike has been stored under an open shed for decades, as a result the engine does not turn over. The bike is still in race trim. Of note is the Australian built, "Squish Head", GP carb and special magneto. The person I purchased this bike from used to race against Matt. I have found some references to this Australian rider and have cut and pasted one below.

In 1969, McDonald, then based in Canberra, won the Bathurst Lightweight Production race on a Bultaco from good mate and dirt-track rival Kevin Fraser, lowering the lap record by a staggering six seconds. Not only that, he won the dirt-track at Orange a few nights before then finished second to Matt Daley at a motocross at Bilpin on Easter Monday.
