UK, United Kingdom
I bought this for a project, no longer needed.......has M12 on the seat lug, that's all I know.
There is no log book, not sure what model it is.
I live in the far south west, but will be travelling to Salisbury within a couple of weeks if that helps. Certain sections are slightly pitted.
Courier approx £30.... But please wait for invoice.
99 p no reserve.
On 12-Jul-14 at 16:12:05 BST, seller added the following information:
THE FRAME NUMBER IS DEFINITELY 026002.....AND WHICH LOOKS LIKE "THM" ON THE SAME LUG, BUT ON THE VERTICAL.
THERE IS A BIT MORE PITTING ON THE MAIN TANK BAR AND TOP OF THE SWINGING ARM THAN THE REST OF THE BIKE. THESE FRAMES ARE-SUBSTANTIAL SO SHOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM, BUT IS A LITTLE DEEPER THAN INITIALLY THOUGHT
THE SWINGING ARM MOVES UP AND DOWN, IS SLIGHTLY STIFF, OBVIOUSLY WOULD NEED REVAMPING.
ITS THE 1st TIME IVE LOOKED AT THIS IN DETAIL, IM TRYING TO PUT SOME MORE PHOTOS ON, BUT FOR SOME REASON I CANT, I WILL TRY A NORMAL CAMERA AND COMPUTER.
JUST INSPECTED THE FRAME, NOT SURE BUT, THERE MAY BE A SLIGHT BEND IN THE TOP TUBE....BY THE REAR LUG...WILL GET SOME PHOTOS ON IN A DIFFERENT FORMAT...THANKS

OK, IM GETTING THERE, THE NUMBERS QUOTED ARE ON THE SEAT LUG.
IVE GONE TO THE HEADSTOCK, THE NUMBERS ARE GREATLY IMPRINTED, BUT, LOOKS LIKE...M12....0A3030....does that make sense...thanks.
On 13-Jul-14 at 15:58:10 BST, seller added the following information:
ADDED SOME NEW PHOTOS, SOLID BUT WITH PITTING......NUMBER IS DIFFICULT TO READ, BUT LOOKS LIKE 02 3000....I WILL KEEP LOOKING, DOES THIS MAKE SENSE.
I PAID A LOT OF MONEY FOR IT, AS IT WAS MEANT TO CHOP AND CHANGE FOR A 30's X PROJECT, THE HEADSTOCK CASTING IS SIMILAR. NOT NEEDED NOW.
CLOSER INSPECTION OF THE MAIN UPPER BAR ISNT THAT BAD, PLEASE SEE PICTURES. ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK
On 15-Jul-14 at 14:16:32 BST, seller added the following information:
I WILL BE GOING TO THE MIDLANDS AND THEN SALISBURY NEXT WEEK, PROBABLY TUESDAY..WEDNESDAY IF ANYONE WANTS TO PICK THE FRAME UP OFF ME..DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF DAY...THANKS
On 16-Jul-14 at 17:02:29 BST, seller added the following information:
FRAME NUMBER .....A 82442....SORRY FOR DELAY
Hi, please can you point out where the frame is bent please?
A: Hi John, I'm generally over critical and try my best to be up front...if it is bent, it's the top tube where the tank fits, if it is, it's very slight. I can't see it making any difference, it's that... Continue reading

Hello if it helps the number should be found on the side of the headstock lug on the offside and start with "A" with 5 numbers say A76537.
Hope this helps and its 1960 onwards.
All the best
A: Headless chicken.......found it...think I need specs...A82442....sorry for the delay folks...les

There should be a 5 digit frame number where the top tube joins the rear down tube on the offside.
Also does the swinging arm move up and down OK?.
A: Number looks like 026002.....not sure if the 6 is 8 or 0.....the rest are correct...there is an indent by the 3rd number, I will try and have a definitive look.....later.....les
