I need to stamp my frame. I have the number, the problem is the bike has already been painted!!
I don’t want to stamp the headstock or engine mount incase it destroys the paint. Also don’t like the idea of rubbing some off and then painting again is such exposed ares.
I had the idea of putting the number on the frame somewhere under the seat out of the way. Has anyone else has this issue? Would it still count and be legal in the eyes of DVLA if i was to stamp the number in a non standard location?
All help welcome

That would indicate to DVLA that the stamp was not performed by BSA and would probably encourage them to investigate why the frame has been restamped, and perhaps question the originality of the frame and its number.
Current bikes......1958 D5, and a 77 Suzuki GT250 being rebuilt. I have a 74 Kawasaki KH400 in the queue, along with a 58 Tiger Cub and a 1980 Honda CB400N. An American import 1978 Honda CB125S just registered and running. I currently ride a 1998 Yamaha XV535 Virago, or a 2011 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster

When I paint my frames I leave a bare metal strip with the frame numbers and clear coat over the bare metal, You could do the same by scrape/removing the paint neatly in a square strip.
