Hi, the D10 is 175cc and some are 3 speed and some are 4 speed, i dont know which this is as ive not had the haynes manual out and checked thru pics etc. but i will tommorrow and try to answer that. i have all new cables etc to finish just needs bearing set (£25) and engine screw set (£12) to finish as far as i can remember.

I THINK! (i.e. not 100% sure!) that the 4 speed motors have the points in a separate. small round cover on the Right hand end of the crank.

Bu please can someone confirm / correct this?
Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!

No, all D10's had switched to the wipac points/genny setup. Only D10 sport models had 4 gears, I THINK the engine numbers started D10S on them but not sure. The bike in question doesn't look like a sport though, they had hump back seats, different forks, headlamp, chrome lightweight mudgaurds and I think the D10 had full width hubs too. So unless you've been lucky and someone has swapped the engine, it'll be 3 speed. Though you can drop a 4 speed straight in if you can find one.
