I don't know what the extra set of numbers mean. Looking at the front end, this would seem a very early A50, but not sure which model/... 63 is my guess? It still has the pre-unit brake and front.

Engine: A.50. 1194

Below: L E(?) 11307

Frame: A50. 3832

Much appreciate any help. This is an export model anyway as went to Africa.

The engine and frame numbers, and the stamps and stamping pattern on the crankcase, indicates that the bike is indeed a 1962 bike.
The stamps were changed by 1964.

(I have few pictures of the numbers on A50 and A65 bikes that early.)
