More interestingly, where is the frame number?

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a 74 Kawasaki S3 400 and a B175 waiting for restoration. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.

More likely a repair. I've had to have that mounting welded up. What size are the small nuts?

Frame number is faint but looks like it's a genuine font.

Weve all welded a cracked mount,but I've never needed to remove an existing mount to fabricate an incorrect one,doesn't make any sense at all the small nuts are of an odd 12 point configuration I hav'nt measured them but they look to be only about 8mm this is only a guesstimate as the powder coating is masking the definition.

Sorry Steve,I didn't answer your question the frame number is on the mount left side where you would expect it to be,also matches the engine number and V5.Not concerned about its authenticity just puzzled by the unusual mount

I can’t see that it would have left the factory like that. But why would someone do it? How odd, still so long as it does the job, and the numbers all match then I don’t see any issues with it. Unusual though..

The factory started using the D14 frames for the Bantam Cub round about 1968 so I thought it may have been intended for one of those,but even they had a welded bracket,maybe someone will come up with the answer
