I am looking for a couple of answers regading the position of transfers on a 1950 D1.
1) Should the plied arms transfer be on the front of the headstock?
2) Should there be a plied arms transfer on both sides of the toolbox?
3) Should the crossed rifles with 125cc below be attached to the cross memebr from the rear mudguard to the number plate?
4) Apart from those at the speedometer head, speedometer drive and the air filter where there any other transfers?

Hi paul,...unless someone on here knows more than me ...i'd say no trasfer on the headstock.... just on the tool box lid...and yes to the top of the number plate bar.... dont forget the transfers for the petrol tank!......
And make sure they are the right way around

If your bike is a direct electric bike the transfers are on both sides of the tool box, battery model only on the front lid.
Some bikes had made in england transfer on the front of the head stock but this was usualy only on the D7 onwards models.
Piled arms on the rear numberplate link piece, Cockrel on each side of the petrol tank.

I put the piled arms transfer on the back of the toolbox not on the lid. I know that is how she was made originally in 1949 but maybe they mixed it up a bit!
All the best,

this john B. I have just completely stripped a 1950 d1,this was complete when I bought it and had laid in a shed since the owner stopped using it.He had it when he was17 to go courting on,he is now 85.I made note of all the transfers on the bike they were, headstock rifles no cc,tool box lid piled arms,number plate bracket ,rifles 125,tank cockerels,chai gard top gear position,speedo warning as to being suitable for a small motorcycle, can’t swear every body will agree but this bike was unmolested,classic transfers have them all,they will no what you need and are helpful and reasonable

Matey was last on here on Tues,but he`s had 5 1/2 years to get his transfers sorted 🙂
Good info on the transfer location,I`ve got one of them thar Rigid jobbies,incomplete,so it wont be original as such,when eventually I get her done.....
I`d love to have seen your bike before you stripped it....what was wrong with her?
High blue ,I have a photo ,before I started , back wheel was out,spokes rusty,paint mostly there but well worn ,inside of tank disgusting but the bike deserved real love and this it will be given ,tank I chemically cleaned inside and it was sound,I had the bike completely beed blasted ,it has all been sprayed, I removed the spokes the need to be rebuilt ,I am now rebuilding all the cycle parts ,the engine started with a carb full of fresh fuel and a points clean , will have cost a fortune when done , but it will be alive again.
