BS 175 Date ?
« on: September 23, 2019, 06:27:57 AM »
Morning,

I have tried to find the dating files but can not find the ones relating to frame numbers for the 175's. I have frame number TAI-12688

The frame tag riveted on is 16 G 12662 - which I think is around 1966 ?

Thanks for any leads  ... ray

That tag number is likely July 1966 manufacture. The frame numbers usually fall close to the tag number, but the tag was the official number for the bike, installed on the actual date of manufacture.
