Fenderless Colson

One of two fenderless LWB Colson I have.
Half of my bikes do not have fenders.
I wanted to start a post about what are the most difficult parts to get for a "Normal" prewar bike.
My vote was for fenders.

Very nice. Was 36 the only year for the long wheel base frame?

57 spitfire,

I have always read that it was 2 years - 1936 and 1937.

I think mine may both be 1937.

I do not want to hijack this into a Colson post but here are picture's of the serial number on mine.

I have read that the numeral/alphabet combo corresponded to year and month. In my examples D7 - April 1937, I7 Sept 1937.

The other characters are a combination of serial numbers, frame maker and possible a code for the company the frame was being made for.

Believe me. I feel your pain. I have several LWB 37's sans fenders... :(
