The 1958 lightweigth was not part of the 1958 range. Production model year runs from September untill August the following year. For example, for 1958 models, Sept 1957 to end of August 1958. This was to get new models ready for tthe motor cycle show. From the motor cycle show onwards, the new models would had been available. So you could have e.g. 1958 model regestered Nov/Dec 1957.
The lightweight was not introduced untill June 1958, right at the very end of the 1958 model year, far to late to be included in the 1958 range. So it appears as 1959 onwards.
