Restoring a 1968 D14 I looked for the frame number in the usual places, on the front mounting plate for the engine and the headstock. The frame number was not found but instead it appears to be stamped on the lower part of the steering yoke, which would normally be obscured by the headlight holder. Has anyone else had a similar experience with a frame. Can anyone explain why the number is stamped there , please ?

Thanks for the reply.  I think it was a late Friday afternoon Bantam when it was made and the bod wanted to get home early.
