I can't find the serial number on my 48cc 2 stroke Chinese engine.
Do I need to pull an engine cover to find it? Is it in english?

For disclosing a VIN, stamp one in or make one up. I have used 007 just to be funny but the DMV could not care less with homebuilts and boats. they just want the blanks filled.

If you built it, "1" is a valid VIN. But add a bunch, they love digits.

You could also use the S/N of the bike. Usually located under the crank. That way there is something you can show the powers that be if they ask.

Thanks everybody. I will get out my engraver and scratch something onto it. I wanted to be able to ID the motor if my mo-bike was stolen and engine was separated from it.

Why would you think there is a serial number? Did someone tell you that?
