i have a D1 with an engine number 76581Y, but am struggling to identify the year of manufacture. Can anyone help please? Also does this engine need a battery?

thanks colin

I have a D1 in the early stages of restoration. May need help with the electrical side of things. Also have a D7 with good tank, side panels in primer, and 3 incomplete engines along with some spares. I had to buy the lot as the previous owner would not sell the D1 on its own. Anyone interested please drop me an email.

thanks Colin

I suspect that would be 76581YD and the D has disappeared under the engine mount. June 1952.

Current bikes......1958 D5,  and a 76 Honda C90 in the workshop.
