Hi Carl,

Looks to be mid-1920s OB. The frame number is on the rhs of the saddle lug - on the flat part, and should be HFxxx.

Cheers

Leon

Great looking OB project Carl!.

This OB frame is in need of some slight buffing of the spots of rust as well :-). In actual fact tho', it is much worse than it looks !

cheers
