FRAME No

it should be on the l/hand side of the steering headstock in a vertical line reading from bottom to top, turn the handle bars to the right it should be clearly visible on the left.

Z = 1958
D = light cruiser 79 ( 171cc) 17T AMC engine
1
0
2   = unique serial number
1
4
1958 model made between May 1958 and end of August 1958, yours is a very early serial No , They started ZD 10002 in May 1958, which would make yours the 212th one made , The letter coding changed to AD for the 1959 models in September 1958 first one being AD10417, so only 415 machines made for the 1958 model.
