Here is a video of the little 52 Standard I gave my son Danny a few days ago. This was his first ride.

That is sooo awesome!!! Look at him go! Maybe cause I'm still new around here, that's the 1st time I've ever seen & heard a Bantam run...has me very close to teary eyed.
I'm wondering if there's any type of 'fabbed' heat shield that can be deployed to help keep all the memories as happy as this...
Thanks for posting and "who's a proud Papa?.." Nice to see this going from one generation to the next in such condition! :tractor_rocks:

Good for you Dad! I see a GTT Junior member in the making.

For now, tell him we said he looks great on it!

Thanks everyone! :thumbs: Littledeere he has already been asking about a wagon to pull stuff around with! That's my boy! :dancingbanana:

Newpaws493, I checked in the gallery under other brands, and I couldn't find any other pics of Bantams here. Does anyone know if there are other members here that have Bantams? On the exaust, I've raised my kids around off road Buggies, and My Wheel Horse with a stack, and they understand not to touch. Hopefuly Danny won't get burned, but if he does, I will relocate the exhaust pipe. :smilewink:

That is awesome going from one generation to the next. Sweet little tractor. :thumbs: I showed the clip to my son and now he is begging for one. He saw several at a show the other week and he is getting serious about his wants.

Thanks Newpaws493, when I asked if anybody else had any Bantams, I had not found the Bantam section here yet, but I found it yesterday, and it really excited me. Thanks for the pics! Very Cool!

I agree, if I did that I would never have to mow again, as much time as he spends on that tractor! :thumbs:
