    hard life as a race bike.But when I measure betwen engine mount holes,then there
    is 30,5 cm ? ,can this be a single cyl frame.Ore are they the same as the 45.

    Looks like an early 45 frame to me, i dont think the single had the "S" shape front downtube. -Bud

    Hi,

    I have some simular modified frame myself, in your case i am 99% sure that you have a

    Frame used on the 30-31 D 45twins AND also on the 30-34 model c single BUTTT the front downpipe is modified for use with an RL or wl type motor (with the dynamo up front)
    Your footboards are indeed diffrent in mounting point, the 30-31 model has a casting in the front downtube that consist
    Of both the enginemount and the footboard mount, the 32> models have a seperate casting for the footboard higher up the tube..


    Your rear section looks period modified looks sturdy!!!

    Goodluck!!

    Bst regards chris

    looking at Johnny Sell's book the bottom engine casting to pipe angle is like the '32-'34 RL frames but the front mount looks like the DL----- maybe for the '32-34 21" single
