The Bantam pictured on the left is a 1949 model - a D1 Plunger with Lucas ignition to be precise and 'now available with a spring frame for extra comfort'!
Would you like one? You would? Well there's one for sale at Whitby's of Acton,W3, for the princely sum of £80/4s/8d - and it includes a speedo! World-famous Pride & Clarke of Stockwell Road, E8, also have them for the same price, and offer easy terms: an initial deposit of £33/4s/8d and the rest on the Never-Never!
Fancy something bigger? A Velocette MAC 350, perhaps? Comerford's of Thames Ditton, Surrey, have one - a '37 model - for only £69/10s! How times have changed!
Now before you go hot-footed to any of these dealerships, I must warn you the bikes listed above may be sold already - as the details all come from the 1948 magazine! And, anyhow, the motorcycle dealers may be long gone of course, unless anyone knows different - if so, please let me know!
