The FB frames started to use a letter in front of the frame No to identify the year , beginning with "A" in 1931, as your frame No does not have a prefix then it pre-dates 1931, I will send you a p.m. with my email address a picture and frame /engine No will be helpful Generally speaking the most likely option is a model 9 for 1926/7 they used a dual oil/petrol tank, from 1928 onwards the oil tank was separate.

Hi Ruud, Welcome to this forum, hope you find what you are looking for. In June 2001 ten club members toured around Holland when we did the FBOC Dambusters Trip, we stopped one night in Arnhem and one night in Breda. The people in Holland were very friendly and helpful toward us, I know we had a really great time there. Below is a photo of us preparing to leave the Van Ham Hotel in Breda. Mike

Hi Ruud, I have the spares book for all 1932 models, if you need a part, I can show you what it looks like. Mike

Here is a Lapwing model 33, it is very much like your model, but I doubt whether it is. If I knew the engine/frame numbers, I may have a picture of the actual model.
