I'm filling out the paperwork trying to get my Maxi re-registered, and I've gotta have both the engine and the frame number. Frame number's right there under the seat, matches the VIN plate on the side, no trouble. Engine number is where I run into trouble. The old V5 document from the 80s has the same number for engine and frame, which is obviously wrong, that's not how that works.
I'm getting a V765 and getting a club (the EACC) to verify the form, as that's cheaper than getting the bike re-registered and lets me keep the registration it had before. I've asked the guy there about this as well, but I don't know whether or not he specifically knows about Maxis, so I figure you folks might be able to help as well.
I've got the code "gum156" off the top of the right-hand crank case, next to where it's marked E50. The letters are in lowercase. Is that the correct format for an E50 engine? UK market, made in 1975 if it makes a difference.
Also, anyone who's gone through the V765 process in the UK, did DVLA care about stuff like this?
Thanks in advance!
