It is Really sad...that they couldn't hold the market, for long time, because of "in direct back door" punching by other Car manufacturers, with help of Government & Financial institutions (Banks)....b'coz this was the practice on those days.....even this was the reason for closure of the mighty " STANDARD MOTORS".......@ SM, it was always Tamil Nadu politicians, played the vital role in shutting the doors !!

It is really sad, we are now searching internet to see a BADAL.......
Why to search??.......here is my Badal( 1978)

The 200cc Innocenti Engine ( air cooled) at the rear.>>

Starter Motor cum DYNAMO ( some thing like Siba -Dyna thing but not exactly)Now at my garage......
Was there any 175cc Villiers engine, that did duty on the Enfield Crusader, on the Badal. I remember that way, perhaps I am totally wrong. I have travelled once in a Badal taxi at North Parur in Kerala where there were many such taxis then. I remember its straight shifting gear lever. Upon launcfh the little Badal was costing around Rs 15000.

From the day one, since the BADAL was launched,..it had the 200cc Innocenti Engine, 2 stroke, air-cooled ( it is almost similar to 3 wheeler LAMBRO or API 175 Tuk Tuk)--plz go down to seen the pics of the power train, which I have posted in this thread.
The straight shifting gear lever, has a two way link as in Lambro, but in a angle & poition to enable gear shift.
for sure, there is no way Villiers Engine here in Badal.
Even the differential seems to resemble the Lambro, may be with different gear ratio ( will post about this while opening the differential of this Badal....which is must in my Badal)
