Good evening,

Last year I bought a d10 as a non runner ,I am pleased to say that despite the fact that it was stood in the back of a garage since 1993 she’s up and running and doing me proud.Now that it’s being used I would like to find a bit more about it. The frame number is D10302 and engine number is the same D10302. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

D10 302 left the factory on the 10th August 1966. It was sent on loan to Silverstone for an American demo (?). On its return, it left the factory again on the 23rd February 1967 and was sent to Elite Motors, London SW17. I hope that helps

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a B175 almost ready for the road and a 76 Honda C90 in the workshop. A 1980 Honda CB400N now on the road and my everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster. All bikes (except the D5) are now for sale...

Thank you,that’s very interesting. Does it say what colour it was please. It is now a metallic light green the chap I got it from said it used to be his dads who had a rack on the back of his camper in the seventys and put the bike on it to use when they were on holiday,and the bantam matched a hillman imp of the same colour. During the recommission I found that the tool box spacers are a quite nice blue which I assumed was the original colour.

There is no mention of colour in the record. However, it’s a Supreme model, and I believe they were produced in Flamboyant blue.
