Facts - BSA Bantam

When the Bantam motorcycles were introduced in 1948, they had rigid frames. These models began to widen as years went. Soon, this BSA Bantam D1 was made with stronger and broader frame, Wipac electrics to increase its market value. Since the motorcycle has many benefits attached to it, people started going in for this model. The BSA Bantam cycles became so famous particularly for its powerful frames. It could also withstand rash riding. It has good and sensitive brakes and plunger rear suspension. Many competitors came up with unyielding frames. However, it was BSA which stood on top of others. The ratings stand at 4.5 out of 5. It tops the lists for strong frames which match the motorcycles’ colour and style. Some models also have swing arm rear suspension. The D5 model has a new barrel with brawny frames which have mud guard and chain guard attached to it. BSA is on the top of the world with its innovative creation of oil-in-frame Fiasco. This model has ratings of 4 out of 5. Besides giving the motor cycle a complete look, it also increased the risk-bearing capacity of the rider as it protects the rider from skidding in muddy roads. Motorcycle frames are commonly made of aluminum and steel alloy. Sometimes, the costly fibre is used in convention frames. The frames protect the sensitive parts from a bumping into.

Types of BSA Bantam frames

Single-cradle frame
The single cradle is the trouble-free type of motorcycle frame and looks like the initial motorcycle frames. It is made from steel tubes. The tubes of smaller diameter lie beneathe and that of higher diameter lies above. This is found mostly in off- roading. Double-cradle frame
Double-cradle frames are founded from single cradle frames. It contains dual cradles which give balance to the engine on both sides. They don’t make the vehicles heavy. These type of frames are normally found in simple bikes. Backbone frame
This model is known for its flexibility in design. It is indeed the backbone which supports the engine with single wide beam. The frame seems to be cheap and less complicated. Mostly, it is attached with the bike at the time of manufacture itself.
