An Erion would be SC443 or SC444 from memory.

Then it's a standard 929 and the owner painted the frame.

Either that or the owner wrecked the bike and threw a Erion frame on it

Then it would have an Erion frame number wouldn't it?

Not necessarily :-)
When I tried to buy a _new_ frame for my GSXR1000, Suzuki told me it comes with no numbers at all and I have to stamp my current frame number into it and transfer the VIN plate across.
It sounds ridiculous but I've never bothered to follow up if it's correct or not so it may be that a _new_ Erion frame could have a non-Erion frame number I guess?
