Hi, I am looking for any information relating to a recently aquired  1963 D1. The frame number is DB2S79763 and the engine number is DDB18226. Any info regarding original reg an dispatch and how close to final production would be great.

I'm away at the moment. I will have a look for you when I get home. 

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 75 Honda CD175 which is being MOT'd as we speak, a 79 Honda NC50 Express (wife's) and a 67 Raleigh Runabout. I have also a couple of Puch Maxi's being turned into one that works, and a 77 Suzuki GT250 waiting for a full rebuild. I have a 74 Kawasaki KH400 in the queue, along with a 78 Honda CB125S and a 1980 Honda CB400N, and I have just bought an 1982 Kawasaki Z250.

DB2s 79763 together with engine DDB 18226 left the factory on the 12th August 1963 and was delivered to Rugg & Son, High Street, Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire. It was originally green.

I wonder if it made the long journey north under it's own power?
