Does this Flea belong here?

Recommended Posts

Howdy, 

 

I have a RE Flea Frame with the number of 6896 I believe.  The front seat frame seems high, and the light switch has 4 positions.

 

Would this be one of the WD fleas? It needs a lot of things, like a motor ( I have 1 1/2 civilian version in the box).

 

But, I think a lot of the info here indicates it would be a WD, but do not want to bother with questions later on if it does not qualify as a military Vehicle.

 

Thanks

Yes indeed Chris. 6896 was the 2726th bike from 4000 ordered in 1943 under contract number S1945 (same contract as mine) and would have had serial number C5113896.  Ron

Ron, 

 

 That is great!  Thanks for your fast response and the serial #.

 

I felt I could see green paint under the blue it is painted now, but sometimes my eyesight is not as good as my imagination.

 

I hope to make this machine a winter project, so now I have an idea of the direction I need to go.

 

Thanks again, I look forward to touching base here as things move forward.

 

Thanks again.

 

Chris
