I have two sets of numbers stamped into the head bracket tube of a frame i have here.

One starts DGM # 13xxx # OM

The other is 860S # 850xxx #

Can aussies in particular tell me which of those is supposed to be the VIN number ?

The registration papers show last rego date in 1985 and there is no VIN number on the papers , only engine number.

860S # 850xxx # Is the VIN number

DGM # 13xxx # is the part number

Crazy huh?

Not entirely correct, at least about the part number.
Verlicchi stamped the frames with partnumber DGM 123 860 SS * *, sent them over to Ducati and Guido at Ducati entered the REAL framenumber between the stars.
So in a few countries in Europe only the sixdigit number was used on the documents.
