I was refused an MOT last month as the guy couldn't read the frame number stamped on the headstock.  Told me it could easily be a ringer!!

Now I'm worried as there must be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many 1984 Lario ringers out there !!!!!!!!

The only useful advice he gave me was to re-stamp the frame.  Now if you can legally re-stamp a frame doesn't that lend itself to abuse?

confused...

On my Norge the VIN plate is buried behind the fairing. You can see it, but a bunch of cables prevents anyone reading the number.
Presumably your tester would have refused an MOT for this too. But I can't present the bike without the fairing so he could read the number as that means no front lights.

My local MoT place always asks for the V5C or an old MoT to be taken along so he can read the VIN off that. Probably highly illegal.....

One time it was insisted we get the VIN off the frame, never mind it was on the V5 and the DVLA database .. Ouch

I kept cocking it up by interpreting one of the 5-pointed stars as a '4', "No", he kept saying,"it dunna match what I got here, try again"

There is currently a red V50 frame on Ebay for £60 but when I messaged the buyer about any numbers on the frame he stated that "all the numbers are there and that by separate negotiation I could buy the V5 which was currently in use on his other bike"

It looks like mix and match is more prevalent than I first thought!!!!
