  • Frame identification by frame number
    main frame number difficult to read the steerer tube number is the only reliable evidence Granby before 1940 used to punch the number on the underside of the head tube along the bottom edge of the fork crown Dursley Pedersen numbers are underneath the leading edge of the front fork spreader plate which carries the lower steering swivel of this frame with the frame s size number on the right near side of the same member 2 Examine the frame number what does it contain See Table 2 Is it a plain serial number or does it have some preceding numbers or letters a prefix or perhaps has some numbers or letters that follow the main number a suffix In order to be a prefix or suffix in this instance there should be a space between the number and the pre or suffix part ot perhaps they are on a different line Note that some number sequences contain a code perhaps made up by having the year of manufacture as the initial or last numbers or indeed both For simplicity this analysis stops at this point and refers you to the published sources or if you are a member of the Veteran CycleClub V CC to the appropriate ME 3 Examine the type of character its font or its shape See Table 3 Note the type of font of the numbers or letters are they curly or straight in style and then their size are they large or small for this table a simple division into large or small has been made at 4mm 5 32 inch When you have established these frame number characteristics refer to the tables below and see if you can find a possible manufacturer Not all possible variations are shown in the tables to avoid them becoming too cluttered Also very few makers maintained the same system of numbering throughout their production run there will be many exceptions However if within the imperfections of this information you feel you have identified a maker then if a member send your frame number details to the appropriate V CC Marque Enthusiast together with any other descriptions such as the lugs and other integral maker s features shown by the frame Depending on the marque the ME may be able to date the machine very accurately from the number Table 1 Typical frame number locations for British bicycles Location and orientation Marques with frame number at this location On BB at 12 o clock at N S GA some Holdsworth Freddie Grubbs have a name oval here On the BB at 6 o clock upright Prewar and post war Rensch Paris Rotrax Sun Bates Hill Special AJ Hodge Major Nichols Freddie Grubb Hetchins Gillott from 1951 Sun Bates Frederick EF Russ Granby Viking post 1961 BB at 9 o clock sometimes at base of Downtube Ephgrave BB on left BB on right On N S rear drop out Stallard Baines Carlton Saxon Gillott prior to 1951 Carlton Viking
