    Frame and Engine Numbers

    Is there a way of checking frame and engine numbers to verify date of manufacture. Also should they be the same as mine are different. Mine is a 250 2C which was less than a year old when I purchased it in 1975 and so its been in my possession for all that time without an engine change (unless someone crept in to the Workshop one night and exchanged it!) The engine is AB 7853 and the frame number AB 8305. There is another number on the LHS of the headstock - DGM 10351 OM which I guess is the VIN . Thoughts anyone?

    Wow that’s a long time to own a bike! The frame and engine numbers are not the same. I don’t know how you age them but the Benellimotobiclubgb do!

    Thanks - this all arose as I lost my V5 some years ago and I sent a V62 to DVLA with the frame number and they said it was invalid as it should be 17 digits long! Only this afternoon I found the original V5 after 16 years of looking! and the Vin is what I told them the AB8506 number!

    Towerdave, thought you said frame number is 8305.
    Are frame numbers usually higher than engine numbers? Got to sort my logbook out as the numbers are wrong way round, should be fun.

    First symbols from are the country of origin of motor and than are few numbers that are making somehow your moto to be lucky, it is from my own experience and also I read about that https://www.sunsigns.org/angel-number-333-meaning/ here, because I had about 3-4 motos and with two I was in accident, and the other two I had a lot of dangerous situations but nothing happens. With those that are in accident, the numbers at the end ar almost the same with 6 and 8, the lucky ones are havin 7 and 3 and 4. Could this be a coincidence??
