i have a D1 with an engine number 76581Y, but am struggling to identify the year of manufacture. Can anyone help please? Also does this engine need a battery?

thanks colin

I have a D1 in the early stages of restoration. May need help with the electrical side of things. Also have a D7 with good tank, side panels in primer, and 3 incomplete engines along with some spares. I had to buy the lot as the previous owner would not sell the D1 on its own. Anyone interested please drop me an email.

thanks Colin

I suspect that would be 76581YD and the D has disappeared under the engine mount. June 1952.

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a B175 in the workshop and a 76 Honda C90 waiting its turn. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.
