Still out there. M306 almost complete

Found a Women's 1943 M306 for sale a few weeks back. Missing the light and bell and pedals. Seat may be post War. I hope to strip off the house paint to the original OD. A buddy of mine picked it up for me and I will take possession this weekend.

Hi,

Nice find (-:

As you already have figured MG144355 K7 is a July 1943 frame (I'll be interested to know the Morrow date eventually, if you would).

It's slightly on it's own, in that there is a block of K6 and K7 M306 bikes between about MG138950 and MG141650, with no known (yet) G519 in the block.

Then comes this one, so far by itself in the middle of a block of G519. Perhaps there was a parts shortage, and they were unable to complete it until then?

Then there's a second, smaller block of M306 with K8 frame dates from around MG153700 to MG155000, the start of which is mixed with some G519 production (including mine). And then that appears to have been the end of them.

So far, I have 12 of this type recorded.

Best Regards,

Adrian

Hi All,

Co-incidences happen, as you know.

Yesterday, I wrote above:

(yet) was my 'Get Out Of Jail Free' word..

And, co-incidentally, I was PM'd by a new member overnight to identify the MG frame they'd got. Sure enough, it's a G519 Columbia serial number MG140xxx K6, so it overlaps slightly into the the first block of Women's M306 frame numbers. (-:

So G519 are still out there too.

If the owner wants to supply more details/photos here, I'll leave that to them. But it's good to see yet another survivor, and thanks for letting me know about it.

Best Regards,

Adrian
