wouldn't it be easyer and cheaper to just use sandpaper and a wire brush or wheel

Sometimes the numbers are stamped very shallow. Wire brushes, wheels and sandpaper may rub them out permanently. Because they are so shallow, primer and paint can hide them.

OK, I removed the paint and there's no vin but you can see the casting marks ( dimples in the metal) so it hasn't been ground off now my newest question is should i leave it the way it is and tell people ( cops, licensing center, guy doing safety, etc.) that they are factory replacement cases or take my stamp set and stamp the vin on the ownership into the case

First no ones going to care about numbers

68 Doesn't need Signals , Day running Light and barely needs a Horn so what are they looking at?
Tires?

Go to Princess auto and buy Stamps and stamp the Motor to match the ownership you got with the bike

If the true vin is A65F then it's a 69
which going by your A6F-XXXX it is

If it's a 68 then it's A65FC (Single carb)

Hope this ends some of your Confusion and Take all that shitty black paint off
Or Buy a Shit load of Gaskets and seals
Since you'll need to replace every time it over heats


buy some 50W oil and have a Drain bung welded to the sump cover
