According to the date stamps, neither is old enough to be from the Armat bike. The atd is, maybe, a clue to the skill levels of those involved.

I did not think that the KVFTT was available before 1950, but I do not have any hard data on that.

1A/70 had a KVF with an ATD.

I would imagine with its first appearance at Surtees shop it had a BTH on it?

I also note that it is not mentioned in Dennis Minnets note book. I looked for it over the weekend. What year did the bike go to Amat. As Minnet started the special shop in early 1949.

I have never seen a series B or C twin listed in the factory records as fitted with BTH mag and I have just quickly looked through the first 100 bikes and they are all Lucas. As far as I know BTH mags were not used on post war twins.
The 1946 and early 1947 bikes are listed in the records as fitted with a Lucas KD2 mag with atd, but 1A/70 is listed with a KVF mag with ATD. The KVF mag appears to have become standard fitment around engine 100.
This bike is pre Minnet notebook.
