Just obtained a dating certificate for my recently acquired T90/T100 bitsa and provided some other interesting notes with it. It turns out the frame was originally one of the 1969 Irish Police T90P bikes, not only that but the frame number was also mistakenly duplicated on one of 22 T100Ps supplied to the White Helmets Team and made on the same day (25 Jan 1969). So linking this with other info available from the VMCC site it looks like the following was the production run:

AC09937 - AC09965 T90P for Irish Police
AC09966 - AC09987 T100P for White Helmets

I think this just goes to show that other errors were made as well as the T100Cs stamped with the wrong year code in that same month of Jan 1969!

1970 TR6C

I should also add that this batch of T90Ps were the last 350 twins made by Triumph (not counting the Bandit of course)
