Age of a frame
Guy's

I know of a series 1frame the numbers start with 538 can anybody please help with the age of this?

I think it's a 125 cc frame

If I bought it can I apply for an age related number plate without an engine in it?

What is the approx value of a good condition frame of that age?

Sorry for all the questions and thanks for any help

A frame number starting with 538 will be from 1958,if it is a '125' frame the prefix will be 125LI.
If the frame is not registered you will have to get an M.O.T done using the frame number as identification,which means that the scooter will need to be complete and roadworthy.Once this is done and all their red tape bullshit has been supplied,you will be issued with an age related plate.
If the frame is in good condition then the price in my opinion will be around the £350-£400 mark.
Im assuming that when you say 'frame',you mean just the bare frame,no panelwork/legshields/forks/headset etc.....
