I have a number stamped on the lower steering yoke which is similar to a frame number. The engine mounting plate,  where the number is normally stamped, is blank. Can anyone identify the number of provide any pointers please ?5ADBF6BD-55AD-4CED-9FA1-AEC2670D0E6B.jpegEEEE96D3-3925-43E0-963B-17E88846BEBC.jpeg

That looks like a part number,the frame number should be seen on the steering head between the top and bottom yokes is the bike a D7?

I understood it was a D14. There doesn’t appear to be a number of the headstock. Looks like the engine mounting plates have been replaced. I have checked the parts manuals for all versions of the D14 and none of part numbers for the bottom yoke correspond with the number shown in the photo.

Hi

looking at the location of the number I would think that it is probably the frame number but stamped on the yoke as a replacement when the engine plate was renewed. Does it match what’s on the V5? It is a bit strange though to stamp it on a part which is not actually the frame and could be moved to another bike! Maybe get it stamped back onto the frame itself?

regards
