Subject: [CR]Claud Butler Serial Numbers.

Hello there, Would any of you fine folk know where I can find information about Claud Butler serial numbers? I've just bought a shabby, badly painted Butler and having stripped it clean, found 646 23 DC stamped. The forks are fully chromed with a lamp bracket but I've yet to find a stamp... It came with, what I think looks like, a Williams cottered chainset with NA8 and NB8 on them. Again, any ideas? It also has Weinmann/Vainqueur centre pulls and a GB non allen key stem
   From what I can gather it could be mid sixties to mid seventies. Would it be 531? Under the 're spray' was a beautiful deep mustard yellow with what must have been white bands. I would love to restore her to her former glory so any help would be gratefully received. All the very best, Kelvin Pawsey Folkestone Kent England
