Toyota Australia say they cannot tell me the year of manufacture of my diesel Liteace truck Model S-CM51-TBSDS and Frame CM51-0003968 can you?

Fixya doesn't have that info, but..........

This is very puzzling. The build date should be clearly visible on the compliance plate which all registered motor vehicles in Oz must have. Then, what is on the rego paper, if any? The original information is supplied by the Toyota dealer when first sold.

If you can find the VIN number (that frame number isn't a VIN, which must be 17 characters in length, not less) on a compliance plate you can begin a trace through the Motor Registry in your State. It might be necessary to pay a search agency. If there is not a compliance plate, ask the Motor Registry what to do next.

A less reliable way to trace this history is to try the engine number, but that can of course be swapped.

there should be an engine number and frame number on your bike which will identify your bike. the engine no is usualy stamped on the bottom engine casing (usualy left hand side). the frame no. should be on the frame just behind the forks. the numbers should both be present and should be the same, not sure how to use this number but take this to your local bike mechanic and he should be able to help you. i had to do this when my mate bought a ty175, wich turned out to be a 1980 dt175!!

Trying to id an engine, was told was off of a 92 or 93 softail. case id # is AB03S3557 any help would be greatly appreciated

I've never seen an engine number such as this on an original engine. It may be a "crate motor" that was purchased seperately from a frame from Harley or it may be some aftermarket engine. I've never seen a number like that and have no idea as to it's origin or original fitment. Unlike the Twin Cam engines, the Softail engine of that era was the same as the engine in any other model H-D bike. All Evolution engines were the same. The transmissions were different but since the transmission did not bolt directly to the engine, all the engines were alike.

Good Luck

I just purchased a1980 FXWG The vin # is 9g50938j0. What I would like to know is of the bikes produced in 1980 how many were FXWG and what were the color options.Is there anyway nto find out what color...

To find out anything about your bike, you must use the longer frame VIN number. The engine number is an abbreviated version ot the frame number and they should match. This would indicate that the original engine is in the frame. If they do not match, then the engine and frame combination are not as they originally came from the factory. This will destroy any "collector's value" that the bike may have had. You'll have to call Harley's historical division to find the information that you're asking for and since they get so many requests for this, you may not get it.

Replacement frame for 2000 fxst

You may be able to get a replacement frame through a dealer or you could order an aftermarket frame from somewhere like V-Twin or Custom Chrome. The problem is the serial number. Since Harleys are so often stolen and the parts swapped, the factory and the law enforcement agencies have a lot to do with frames and frame numbers. If you change frames, the serial number will not match the engine and depending on how your state registers vehicles, you may have to re-register the bike. To do this you will need a "Certificate of Origin" with the new frame. I'd check with your local DMV to see what is involved.

Good Luck
