British Bikes / Corrrect Speedo for a D3 Bantam
« on: August 25, 2021, 08:10:30 PM »
Hey folks,

Which scale is the correct one for a D3 Bantam (a D shaped smiths speedo) - 55, 65 or 70 mph? Am trying to find out for a friend with a D3 and we are seeing images of all three speedo's on the web!

The Classic Biker Bar / Where to get a speedo hub drive from?
« on: July 27, 2021, 06:51:18 PM »
Howdy all,

Looking to source a speedo hub drive for a rearwheel - something like the one attached to the rearwheel of this (bit hard to see it clearly I know!): motorcycle.jpg

The internals for it I can get from here:

But I've no idea where to get the 90* drive box that connects to the brake plate

Any help greatly appreciated.


Identify these bikes! / Verify/ID 197CC SUN

Hi all,
Looking to verify this is a 197CC Villiers SUN Challenger. It was left to me after my father passed away last year, he acquired it some 46 years ago when we lived in Northern Ireland. Unfortunately I have no documents or photos of it other than a few bits of paper my dad scribbled the registration and engine/frame number on!

The front wheel is in backwards and the seat is plonked on there - this was done to keep it complete as a bike and move it about.

Codes on the bike as below:

frame (headstock): S148A
plunger (could be a casting mark?): 4-101 and a triangle symbol
base of vertical tube under the seat: S18?? (looks over stamped on the last digit)
engine: 517 7882 E
Code on base of the barrel: VJ 6 B7095A
