I have a couple of Vespa's coming from overseas but I have some problems with the Chassis number being accepted for an Import Permit. This appears to be a problem with both Vespa's.
For example the registration papers from Asia show a chassis number on one of the Vespa's as VLB1-1186952 and the other as VLB1-0174762. I have had the government department say both the numbers say they are incorrect, and request a photo of the actual number on the chassis. The problem here is they are already packed and on a ship (my bad not getting the permit first, oops).
Does anyone here know how to make sense of the chassis numbers and why they may think that they are incorrect? I have attached photos of the registration papers of each from the early 70's.
