Bantam 100

Post by vince. » Fri Aug 17, 2012 2:22 pm

There`s already a post on this little treasure, but the pics have gone West, so I thought time for more thumbsupsmilie

I`ve got a bit of a thing for these & their brothers.

They claim these are the reels that started it all. Catalogued in the US from 1978-81 when in 1982 the 100SG upgrade started

The stamp on the base plate is DK November 1979.
