I know Ian will not agree but the thought of my Monza having something in common with an old Land Rover is quite a worry

I don't suppose they're doing it out of charity.  Finding another frame might be cheaper!

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

Yes, thanks for that, there are several frames on there but none are Monza PE frames which would retain the authenticity of the machine, however I haven`t given up on the DVLA

After applying for a certificate of origin in the hopes that all the original numbers would have been on it, Moto Guzzi have replied to say that after 1967 they did not record engine numbers.
So back to the drawing board which currently stands at 30+ garages/dealers that will not stamp my frame.
The phrase `rock and hard stuff` comes to mind
Still smiling though

What woes. You surely have our sympathy.

The words "just needs a NOVA" are what convinced me not to buy the bike that I had been looking for for a very, very long time. I feel no remorse.

Chris,
Just had this in my usual V50 / V35 feed from Ebay :-

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Moto-Guzzi-V50-III-Frame-With-V5-Monza-Imola/174114822560?hash=item288a0d59a0:g:LeAAAOSw54Nd5kc-

Not sure if it's any use to you but might make a starting point...

Cheers,
Adrian

This is GUTSIBITS on Ebay unfortunately it`s a V50/3 frame which would likely downgrade my bike to a Monza replica because of the frame number
Thanks for thinking of me anyway

Chris,
You are welcome, sorry it was not of any use.. Hope you find a way to get your problem sorted.

I have found that when dealing with public bodies / Govt departments that they do contain intelligent life forms, it's just that they are hidden behind loads of lesser beings whose sole purpose is to fob you off and do nothing to help..

Once when dealing with HMRC after protracted phone calls with various depts over several weeks I got brassed off and asked the last unfortunate specimen how I went about raising a formal complaint... I was magically transferred instantly to a very helpful "supervisor" and the whole issue was sorted in less than 20 minutes.....

Cheers,
Adrian
