Hi all.

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, a 75 Honda CD175, a 79 Honda NC50 Express (wife's), a 67 Raleigh Runabout and a 80 Puch Maxi, and a 77 Suzuki GT250 being rebuilt. I have a 74 Kawasaki KH400 in the queue, along with a 78 Honda CB125S and a 1980 Honda CB400N.  I currently ride a 1982 Kawasaki Z250.
