1970 B44 Victor special
« on: 29 April, 2021, 18:04:30 »
Hi, just purchased a 1970 441 Victor special with steel tank/ TLS front brake and in shooting star livery. The Engine no is BC1154/B44VS and frame no is D11109/B44VS. Are these numbers correct for that year?

Check the frame number, if 1970 it would start with 2 letters not 1. These numbers are sometimes quite faint stampings easily obscured if the frame has been powdercoated.

The engine and frame numbers would be the same. 

The C in the engine number means 1969 season. The B means March. Maybe another figure in the engine number?

My matching number 1970 VS starts with PD. Whatever that means.

That’s was optimistic, “B indicates 1980 model”?!!
