When did Shelby stop stamping the BB with the serial number and start riveting serial tag plates to the BB?
And doesn't the inverted last two numbers on the stamped numbers indicate the year.

ie... 51..xxx65....mean 1956 or is it 51?

thx.
Here's what I am trying to determine the year on...Shelby Flyer

Late 40s when the tag started, reverse year #s is Snyder built bikes.
Snyder built Shelbys?
Didn't know the were in bed together.
But, then again, I'm not a Shelby collector.
Good hearing from you Adam

No, no relation. Snyder was the only co. w/the reverse year codes. Shelby was the 'No: 49' , was a '49.
