Love the Bantam. Bikes like that don't just complement the history, they're part of it.

I ended up with the carb cleaner/ compressed air method. I let the varnished brassy bits soak in lacquer thinner for a while,
and blew them dry. Everything seemed to clean up nicely, and I've the gasket/seals kits coming....

The journey was comparatively uneventful. I never had to shoot anybody and nobody shot me!
