During the tech inspection before the race do they look for a VIN number? I have heard that some clubs do this is Williow one of them? Now before you go all nuts and say I stole a bike.....etc. I am asking because I am looking for a racebike to race next season and found an '03 GSXR600 but it has no VIN on the frame. The seller claims the frame was bent so he bought one off of Ebay...I do have another option I am looking at an 03 600RR that is very nice with a VIN....so do they check VIN or not....

no they don't. and i'd be a bit weary believing some guys story about why his bike has no VIN on it.. i dispise bike thieves and people that knowingly buy stolen bikes. unfortunately a lot of racers do this. (i know you wouldn't knowingly do so) just saying in general.

Yeah I think that I am a little uncomfortable getting it with no VIN on it. It is a really good deal and usually if it is a good deal there is something that you are not being told. Did you get the PM I sent you with the pic of the RR I am looking at?

I've sold plenty of bikes with no VINs on them. Racebike's often get destroyed and when you need to replace a frame, the OEM replacement is not stamped and comes bare from the factory.

I remember Fever telling me some similiar story about Christine when I was interested!

I've had frames without VIN's and it does not always indicate anything shady. Both my racebikes have VIN #s now though, and no titles.


thieves



Those who knowingly buy from thieves.




those who think honest people are thieves just because they don't have VIN's on their shit.

Bikes with no VIN numbers on them, mean they ordered a frame from Suzuki and have not had their old VIN number stamped on the neck. Now if the numbers have been ground off somehow, then I would be leary on buying that bike. I know that State Troopers occassionally visit the tracks and will check numbers on bikes. You will have 30 days to provide proof of ownership if you do not have it there with you at the time of inspection
