I have a possible triumph ridged frame with frame numbers but can not identify. Please can you help?

It appears to be a rigid (not 'ridged') Triumph 5T, 6T, T100 frame from approx. '52 - '54 with certain parts cut off (and others added).

What appears to be F1910+ is very likely to be the lug casting number and not the 'frame' number.

Looks like Triumph, but with an awful lot of welding. Number is possibly fake.

I was going to pick up on the "ridged" frame  too, but must be feeling charitable.

At least the foul phrase 'hardtail' was not used. ;)

Yes, it should be on the left-hand side of the lug where that area of rust is.
Unless it's been ground off, for whatever reason.  :-\

28974 should be 1952. According to the '52 parts book, the same frame was used for the 5T, 6T and T100, so unless one of our forum members has a copy of the factory records for that period then I think you would probably have to get in contact with the records section of either the VMCC or TOMCC to find out that information for which you may have to either join the club or pay a fee as a non-member.
