1949 VCH production stared at CO101 and ended at 159, which makes 159-101+1=59 as the numbers are inclusive. However there are 4 blank entries although one of those appears in the 1950 listing and there is an 'engine only' entry. To confuse things this engine only entry is listed as a complete bike in 1950! Total bikes for 1949 is 56, 18 of which had CP gearboxes.
1950 production numbers continue and overlap with 1949 and run from 160 to 215 with 1 blank entry and i engine only = 54, 6 with CP 'boxes.
1951 continues the numbers as before and runs from 205 to 292, there are 3 blank entries plus CO 300 as engine only = 85 bikes, 3 with CP 'boxes
Total VCH production therefore was 198.
