I just picked up my 58 simplex automatic scooter. Bike is all original never been touched. It cleaned up very good. Are there any production numbers for these?

Welcome Simplexscooter . Smiley

That did clean up nicely . Sweet scooter .

I would think there is a frame # stamped somewhere on the bike .

No production numbers that I know of , other than maybe in a landfill , somewhere . Sad
 Tulane university library has a number of selections concerning Simplex Manufacturing , but , none are digitized .

I think the frame number is on the frame, underneath the seat,  on the scooters.

Morning,

I just bought a roller 1958 scooter and would really love if you could post some pics of yours.  Maybe several!  Posting directly into the site makes them last here.

Thanks,  Tom

Here's his scooter :

I figured as much . A little site action sure wouldn't hurt anything . Maybe as Winter takes hold , more projects will be on the table and some might bring more activity here .

And , the pics ... Not a problem .

Here's one more . Just a different angle than  http://www.simplexservi-cycle.com/index.php?topic=354.0 :
