The only information the RAC gives me for this numberplate is the engine size, 250cc.

And this is what Autotrader says:

Vehicle Registration Mark VNU496
Make OTHER BRITISH MAKES
Model OTHER
Transmission & fuel type PETROL
Body Type MOTORCYCLE
Colour RED

So now we know it's British.

I don't use mycarcheck. I use the vehicle check on Auto Trader and the DVLA database.

It's a James Comet, 1954 is about right, but not an Indian!

Well the plate was registered to an Indian (cf Sunbar's comment) but we lack of bike experts

Here is a James Comet with rigid frame.

It's a tiny machine. To me, should this be a James (and actually, I'd take it for a 2-stroke, yes), this would be more likely a James Captain or Colonel or Commodore.

Easyly available documentation somewhere? This James site does not show too much profiglacy for the poor amateur.
