Re: Frame VIN ?
That is not so common over here but does still happen. Some bikes/cars are stolen and while some are used in crimes, some are dumped/used for joy riding, some are actually stripped, shipped before the owner realises or has their identity "modified" so that the thieves can put a set license plates on and use it and never get traced to the original owners.
To re-register a car/bike/kit car which you have "built from scratch", you will have to go through a bit of paperwork and then you will be issued a Q-Registration Plate which cannot be removed or taken off. This then shows the officials etc that the car/bike has been made from different cars/bikes.
