    Mine is 243737 1/71...

    Does that mean 30k+ bikes were produced in 6 months?!

    The short answer is, yes.

    By the numbers, ~185,000 CT70K0s were manufactured between 07/69 and 07/71. I'm rounding-up to consider the hiccups that occurred during June of `69 and since we don't know the exact date when production began...or the exact cutoff date in `71. Mathematically, that's ~7700 per month, ~46250 in six months. That doesn't take into account the H-model.

    That’s a match (y). The numbers are almost never the same, and yours are close enough to believe they were paired together in the factory

    Frame: CT70-282798
    Engine: CT70E-282660
    does this count as a numbers match?
