I think the BSA Bantam was derived from a DKW engine after WW2. So in a way you could say it's an early Bantam!

Yes, as part of German's post war reparations BSA got access to 2 stroke technology.

I would go with the dkw, the gear shift is on the wrong side for a brit bike.

I believe the bantam was a mirror image of the dkw design taken as a war reparation, hence the levers seeming on the 'wrong' side.
