Hi all - I'm probably being a bit of a numpty here but I can't pin down my year from my Engine number - I think it's 1952 but would feel re-assured if it could be confirmed before I start re-building it. 

The number is 62617YD Engine number

I have checked the club lists but my number has the letters as a suffix not a prefix. It might not be relevant but then again I'm easily confused.

Many thanks.

Hi 

I've had a look at the Despatch books , Unfortunatley there are no details entered next to the engine number , but engine/frame numbers either side dates 62617YD to oct/51

 

I hope this helps 

 

Best regards 

Tim

Thanks both - that makes the engine a bit earlier than I thought - the frame (I Think) is 1955 if I'm reading the charts correctly.

Hi 

Yes you are reading it correctly , the frame numbers date the frame to Jan 1955 when it left the BSA factory .

 

When your ready to complete the registration application let me know and i'll help you with the processing of the paperwork 

 

best regards 

Tim
