Hi All,

Just trying to clarify what frame my D1 is. the serial number on the frame is YD1S 82162. I belive its a 1952 GPO model, but falls outside those serial numbers?

Any help would be appreciated 🙂

'52 plunger, methinks. Don't know about the GPO bit.

 '55 D3 Battery; '58 Square Four (project); '59 D1 direct lighting plunger; '59 Tiger Cub; '60 5TA;  '76 FS1-E; '91 GTR 1000;  '97 Honda Sky SGX50.

Hi Josh

The frame number doesn't match the GPO frame numbers sequence , therefore its not a GPO frame.

Stoo63 is correct its a 1952 D1 Plunger frame

when you're ready to register it let me know and will help you with the application

 

many thanks

Thanks both 🙂 GPO was a guess as that what my dad thought it was (not always the most reliable with these things XD)

Hi Josh

I've had a look for the frame in the BSA factory despatch books

 

Frame 82162 went engine 76820 and was despatched to a Dealer in Fleetwood Lancashire on 23/06/52

 

give me a shout when you are ready to register it I will help you and produce a dating cert as part of the process .

 

thanks

Tim
