Hello,

I've seen somewhere that some later D14s left the factory with B175 engines fitted. Is there any way to verify this by frame or engine No please ?

Sorry to hear that you are giving up you post Steve, Have always read your posts with interest.

Thanks.

Barrie

I have looked through the factory records and there is nothing there to suggest that the late D14's left with anything other than a D14 engine. They are all numbered the same so I can only assume that the machines with frame numbers beginning with D14 left with engines beginning D14, not B175. Whatever the engine was they left with, they were stamped D14 though it may have been possible that some engines were built with B175 parts but stamped D14.

Thank you for your support Barrie, I hope the above information 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...
