PAN FRAME

my cousin acquired a pan frame, he thinks. there is a casting # on the rear strut where the shock would mount to 47645-65y and what looks like an 87 on left side of neck. what year would this be? and what other #'s or marks will help identify? thanks for the help. 8) aloha, jd

There are lot of ways to identify it. Posting a photo here would help a lot. On the top motor mount, usually on the right hand side will be a letter and a number. Somrthing like F9. This the code for the month and year the frame was made. A=Jan, B=Feb, C-Mar ETC, Except that the letter i was not used. The number is the year. 1= 61 or 71 or 81. The numbers were the same for frames built 10 years apart so you have to look at other things. What type of coil/oiltank mount is on the seat post tube?

This will be a electric start frame (1965 and up) with those numbers. If the right side of the top engine mount does not have a number followed by a letter....(ground off)...some other identifying clues are:
Does it have a keyed lock in the neck or does it have a hole on the lower right gusset of the neck to drop a padlock into?
What is the last number on the front engine mount 48E-621 then round Hallmark then ? number.

chris,
no # on top motor mount. there is a hole for a fork lock. just the raised area where an internal lock would go.

JD,
Every swing are frame that left the factory had those numbers on them. They are generally on the brake pedal side on the motor mount part, not the gas tank part. Perdaps they are filled with paint?

On electric start frames the neck lock was used on the 1965-1968 models. !969 and later used padlocks
