Mines on a '68 reg. plate so I guess I'll have to check on the slim chance my M20s post war registration is listed...Ian

Re: Ruddington Vehicle Sales Catalogue

I have been through the post war key cards to see if there are any patterns.

Note some of the frame numbers could be engine numbers and there are likely to be typos both by the original clerk's who produced the keycards and probably me.

Re: Ruddington Vehicle Sales Catalogue

Looking at Rob Millers list my bike lot 2178 26ZC53 has a frame prefix 25/cw etc before the actual frame number. Do all WM20s have this kind of prefix or is it just mine.Also what does it mean.

Re: Ruddington Vehicle Sales Catalogue

Hi Jon

These frame numbers crop up in the post war key cards quite a bit, both 25/.../.. and 31/.../.., it would appear that they were stamped on during a rebuild which according to all the MT literature I have seen was supposed to happen to each B Vehicle every 3 years but probably didn't. I suspect it could be linked to a certain depot or workshop but there doesn't seem to sufficient evidence to say which ones yet.

It would be interesting to see a close up of your frame number to see if a previous number had been removed or if this number was stamped on to a new replacement frame.

Re: Ruddington Vehicle Sales Catalogue

I got about 20 of these Ruddington catologs, let me know what reg's to search for, and I will have a look.

... and the person who made up the Ruddington catalogue! Just noticed two anomalies:
Lot number 2069: Registration Number PMY 83: 350cc SV --> Some of the early WD/Ds were registered with a PMY prefix, so this must have been a 250cc SV, not a 350cc SV
Lot number 2070: Registration Number 47071: 350cc SV --> This is a census number from a block that was issued to militarised Model D bikes, so this must have been a 250cc SV, not a 350cc SV.

Hi Jan

Lot's 2069 and 2070 appear to be Ruston Bucyrus "10RB" Drag shovels?

Re: Ruddington Vehicle Sales Catalogue

Oops... This thread inspired me to make a list of all the Royal Enfield entries in these Ruddington catalogues. Have accumulated several scans and lists over the years, but never made a proper list. And that's how I found these. Thought this scan came from you Rob? Somehow I even thought it came from this thread...? :thinking_face:

Re: Ruddington Vehicle Sales Catalogue

Hi Lex,

My WM20 BSA was registered for civilian use in 1967 Frame number 31876. Post war army number is still visible 08YD83. It was registered and sold through Dawson's in Nottingham, so almost certainly went through Ruddington in 1966 or 1967.
Any info from your Ruddington catalogues would be most welcome?
Best wishes
