Pre War / Help Identifying Frame (S31 / R17)
« on: 27 February, 2018, 21:53:21 »
Dear BSA owners,

I'm Looking for info regarding bike frame / parts on below photos that has been recovered from an old barn. Engine (#Y7 1131) has been identified By BSAOC dating officer and seems to belong to 1931 Model S31. However as the frame number was misspelled this could not be identified at the time. There is #D6 3074 on the frame (Under saddle). With reference to BSA frame and engine numbers table this would correspond to R17 model from 1936. However, having twin down tubes, that seems bit odd. Afraid this bike has been assembled from two different frames. Perhaps partially from S31. Front end has been fitted from quite a bit newer bike at some point (Pannonia), yet tank seems from older model BSA as it is without panel etc. 
On one down tube near the engine, there is also #RD7 2423 4 stamped on it. Believe that to be part number, as same appears on another BSA frame.
Would very much appreciate all information that can help to identify frame and other parts that are making up this bike.

Best regards,
