It probably didn't look like that when it was stolen.

There is only ONE reason it wouldn't have a VIN. It HAS to be stolen

Yeah. Ask the dude to send a picture of the headstock. Wonder how deep the ground the vin out.

Frames comes from the factory with no vin. We broke a frame on a zx6 and bought a new frame. The new frame was stamped at the dealer and old frame was destroyed. If any of those steps are skipped a frame could very easily have no vin and not be stolen. A blank frame is different than a frame with a ground down vin.

Probably took a heating torch to it and filled in all the VIN numbers. That is the latest "fad" on MC vins. Melt the metal and smooth it out.

Send a message via AIM to Romeo36
lets see that frame was originally black. obviously it is now polished. which means they had to have sanded the frame.. maybe they are that stupid to sand off the vin at the same time. judging by the bike itself they really dont look like the sharpest tool in the shed

It would take some doing to sand it off. Not something you would do by accident.

It still sounds particularly fishy.
