BTW-the engine number should be a decent indicator of build date. According to Falloon "toward the end of 1986 the final batch of 300 F1s was constructed, beginning at engine number 7501505. So my engine number of 7501154 would indicate a build date of sometime in mid to late 1986.

Also, there was a thread somewhere about the US models having the additional VIN plate welded on them as the factory had not implemented a 17 digit VIN. There is an additional number stamped on my steering head tube of DGM 51787 OM. Anyone else have a similar stamping?

Mine is similar, when I bought the bike and then I noticed that, I figured the bike was chopped up or stolen or something. I was relieved to find out otherwise. I don't see how any department of motor vehicles would think that the frame number is legitimate when you look at such a cobbed up thing. If they inspected it they would probably confiscate the bike as bad xample of someone trying to alter the frame number.

Looking at TJ numbers and Mikes numbers.....

Mikes data plate (first picture) says 7501639 and build date of 4-87. Frame is 751498? If so, these seem to make sense for a very late bike....my engine #7501527 and frame is 750799 a little earlier

TJ is engine #7501154 and frame are #750764 earlier than mine. In all 3 cases the engines and frame S/N on each bike seems to sequence somewhat in unison.

Nice collection of photos Mike. I have a similar one.

My F1 has an early B engine, but it is an '87 according to my insurance company, and it has a metal strip welded to the headstock. I know the first buyer, so that is the way it came. MikeV

OK I'm super confused....to whom does the photo of the Giugiaro (early lettering) F1 belong? I can't read the VIN on it but it certainly wasn't built in 87 unless the tank was repainted with early style logos.
