I would suggest 1974. My Witcomb ser. no. is 1039474 and have confirmation from Ernie (Barry's father) that it was made in 1974 and shipped to Baker's Bikes in Feb. of 1974. I recently had the fork off and noticed that the steering tube was marked Bakers bikes Oct. 1974. I've been told that Witcomb can be contacted by phone or letter. I was quoted a price for all of the transfers at 20 pounds sterling.

The difference in the remaining 5 digits divided by 4yrs suggests about 2500 frames per year. Does this make sense for a small shop production?
