Frame and motor info sought

Post  Gary B on Tue Mar 07, 2017 4:41 am

Hi all thank you for accepting me..
I have two frames and a motor with the following numbers, would anyone know when they would have been made and what model they would be from as they are not complete. Frame numbers EC30356 and EC31646. Villiers engine XVIIA BYX 833. Thanks

Hi Gary,
The earlier frame is likely to be from about April 1935. Are you sure the second one begins EC rather than FC as the number suggests November/December 1935 which would make it a 1936 model Year and hence should begin with an F. The engine most likely dates from mid 1936 and is a 250cc type 17A.

The 17A was used in the Cruiser (model 45) although this had a frame prefix FB, GB, HB etc. I'm not sure if the 17A was used in anything else but someone else will confirm. I don't think it was used before 1936 model year which suggests your frames and engine are not from the same model.

Steve.
