Hello everyone,

I have discovered this old motorbike frame. Can anyone please indentify it and tell me if it is worth anything?

Everything is worth something~ to a passionate collector ~ and if it is cheap enough .. and you have a tolerant partner and the space ~ you coudl save it from oblivion.

Looks late 40 into 50s to me maybe even later ~ but see if you can sight some frame numbers would be helpful ~
