Non-matching frame / motor...

In this case, non-matching numbers is the way it came from the factory.

It wasn't a legal requirement in Europe that numbers match, like it was in the US.

7 K ? Ah ah you wish, I bet the reserve is set at 15 k

( not saying it worth 15 , but knowing CG , their  stuff is highly priced)

I bet still running chrome bores ah ah

You may be right (??) - just a guess on my part.  Usually, if the bid it $5K, for example, the reserve is usually double that amount, but like you mentioned....not always! :shocked: :shocked:
