Triumph frame dating

Therefore, because 'C'-range frames in any year are the same, if the frame and engine numbers don't match, you don't have any idea whether you have "a twenty one engine in a tiger 90 frame", or a 21 engine in another 21's frame, or a 21 engine in a variant's frame, etc. An inquiry of the VMCC may be able to tell you what engine went in that frame.
