so i just got a 86 variant SLE frame.
unfortunately the vin tag on the head tube was removed.
as many of you know, in 1981 all VIN numbers were standardized to contain 17 digits. I have no reason to believe this frame is stolen, so not to worry.
If anybody with a 1984-1986 variant SL, SLE whatever could post the prefix of their vin numbers so I can try to piece together the correct VIN number and get this thing registered.
my 88 variant sport is VTHMD3099JSXXXXXX
