Obviously you've spoken to Len and your frame number is not on the register?
I guess this frame number is a lateish Hetchins - by that I mean a"Latin": the reason for asking is that mine is a pre-Latin and the frame number is on the rear dropout, not on the BB.
I'd never sell mine either - bought new in 1947 by my Grandad, and will appear in the Hetchins gallery in the new year after the restoration is completed.
Hi Roadking. Len found a reference to my frame after firstly having no luck. The fame was a 1937 built model and the number was on the bottom bracket only.
The bike was stolen just after I had it converted with road drop-outs and the original double crown front forks had gone missing.
The only remaining ID was the H108 on the BB shell.
The bike was originally a dull maroon colour,I had it Stove Enamelled black. It was pinched and badly scratched when I got the frame back.
I rebuilt it with a pair full chromed front forks and all of the top gear of the day (1964) then sold it in the Summer of 1967.
