its yer volts!
check the output of the mag / generator thingy.
Here is the service sheet. http://www.mistgreen.com/s_sheets/SS810.pdf. Its the second sheet, 810-A.

I wouldn't bother, the lights on all the Bantams I rode as a youff were so crap we usually taped on flash lights front and back. We had more understanding law enforcement officers in those days.

I've got a D1 Bantam that had the same problem. I called a Bantam specialist in England years ago and told them of the problem, they said "you got a good one". I ended up using 12v bulbs and they work fine.
