In my opinion Ballak drew the line between 30 and 31 wrong. This is based on observing the casting date on cases and correlating them with serial numbers. I don't think the 31 model year started until at least 36000, maybe not until 36200 ... Perry|

It seems that an inordinate amount of 1931 KJs still exist.
There seem to be a lot of 1929's, and a lot of 1931's out there, but not too many 1930's.
Could Ballak's serial number list be wrong? They show
1929 - s/n 28000 (between 4000 and 5000 bikes)
1930 - s/n 33000 (between 1000 and 2000 bikes)
1931 - s/n 35000 (unknown when they stopped, but the highest serial number I've seen is 36862)
Does anyone have a bike with serial number 35xxx or 36xxx that has a title that says 1930?
It just seems odd that so few 1930's have survived.
