Default Query on a 1958 TA

Can I ask that Colin does a search on 8972 TA please? The printed lists of frame numbers suggest that it was a 25 TA twin, but that number is 300 + over the introduction number. Were there that many twins, or was there a continuation of 20 TAs after the twins were built?

8972/TA is a 20TA. It started life with a 9E.

Thanks Colin, that confirms what I thought originally. I had to explain to the prospective member that because the serial numbers for the 25TA started before (WELL before) this number, it doesn't mean there were over 300 twins made!

Both the 25TA and the 25SA were produced to special order only. Very few were made and in any case they were rendered obsolete in less than a year by the introduction of the 31A and its various developments.
