Default 325 East Coaster

Now waiting for delivery of my 325 East Coaster (32DD124). These were imported by Randy Wilson,
not sure if any other American importers had them.
I have the engine as well, just not in the frame. No doubt more light will be thrown on the numbers of these produced,
though again without export records that might be more difficult.

Interesting news Tony, should have a 'B' suffix. At present I have 4 of these registered as surviving

32DD 124B b/case found in USA 4/17 & bought by a GRA member (Tony)
32DD 125B GRA member in Canada un-restored
Note these have a DD frame number which may have been from old stock to make up a 32DC fitted with steel tank & alloy guards so not an Essex.
32DC 148B In USA believed a runner
32DC 153B in USA possible runner colour blue 5/17

So looks like there could be at least another 4 (149B-152B)

I have attached the Randy Wilson 325 East Coaster road test leaflet below. It was codged together using a road test of a 32DC with pics of the UK East Coaster. No date on Randy Wilsons leaflet but it must have been later than September 1965 to get the pics from the UK EC Road Test by Motor Cycle Mechanics.

Default 32dc153b

Another Randy Wilson 325 East Coaster recently sold on Craigslist in the USA
https://newlondon.craigslist.org/mcy/6117232109.html
If any of our USA members bought this they may like to come on board.
I understand that the frame number of this bike was 32DC153B

Default 32DC144 where are you

Was checking through some old notes today & found reference to a 32DC registered VVL175 on 28/8/63 in the UK. Its currently on SORN. The number looks to be in the same batch as the Randy Wilson 32DC East Coasters.
VVL175 where are you
