The point being, when does having too many numbers on your crankcases break the law
If your motor has the same numbers somewhere on the case (there is no law that says the MSO numbers have to be in an exact spot. That "spot" is wherever the manufacturer puts them.) Once the MSO is stamped, that's it. You can't touch the MSO numbers
. There's the numbers on the case and the bikes' registration paper your carrying also has the MS0 numbers printed on it. Sounds legal to me so far.
" serial numbers (newly coined phrase, one of many
to follow since now that the new 3.5 tanks are being made, there is a completely new Big Twin market being created) are just made-up numbers. They would be treated no differently than random numbers like say, matching case numbers, or foundry numbers. They're just numbers.
No laws have been broken. If you have the real 55FL1903
you don't have an MSO number. You have the real thing. If someone rolls into the parking lot with 55FL1903
on their repop cases, you have only one choice: You can jump the guy and start punching him, "Those (punch)...are (punch, punch) my (punch) ...case.....(punch) numbers
But that's about it, imo. No laws have been broken. All that's happened is that you can do some jail time for assault or/and
instead of having one Panhead in a 1,000 mile radius, you now have two Panheads within 1,000 miles of each other. Extrapolated out (now including the new
3.5 gallon tanks), this means more people will have rigid frame Panheads that they bought in a box, instead of spending valuable time trying to cajole OEM antique parts away from people who hoard them.
I'm going to try and find an AAOK faux stamped case and post it.
Imo, the repop knuckle and early Pan cam covers look real, but the repop '54-64 cam cover looks not so real, although you can add some top-roll to the upper (generator area) casting and make it look better, but they basically did a lousy job
on the replication of it. Have you seen that Knuckle motor on AAOK's site? Someone posted it on another topic. They look real.
