    Hi

    I was just wondering, what frame number is the earliest existing survivor?

    Anyone know?

    So go on then, I’ll start this off

    I’ve got 001645

    The reason I ask is that this bike has some early parts such as the the light switch is different to later ones (the horn push assembly isn’t held in by a bracket/screw, the throttle assembled has the screw in type throttle cables, the flasher relay bracket under the battery tray is different to later ones etc etc
