Went out on my 54 bantam D3 with a chap off the Bantam club forum having a great ride but then the back wheel started wobbling and the chain came off, wheel locked up just as I got it stopped at the side of the road.
Turns out the hub has failed, looks like the welds have sheared!!
I think I was very lucky really.
Long and the short of it, I'm not sure if it can be repaired so I'm after a replacement 19" back wheel, preferably straight and true. Rust not an issue I'll get it blasted and powder coated to match the front.
