    They don't have much info on them Wayne,, Only the style of Frame Eg Ridiged, Softail and the Rear Tyre Size, The Type of Tube used,The Date the Frame was Sold and the Serial Number of the Frame. They also have Title info of who the Frame was first sold to.

    Yes Aust Made do, If there made to be sold to a second party
    I use Luke at Gworks for some of the Frames we sell, I get alot of requests for Frames that I carn't get off the Shelf so I get Luke to Built them to the customers spec's His frames are made here and he has his own MSO . we have not had any problems getting the Bikes on the road in every State.

    If your building a one off custom frame for your self you dont, but the Engineer wilL ask to two Identcal Frames . One will be sacrficed of testing, if it passes you can use the other

    The legal minimum varies from area to area and state to state . Some US states require to whole shebang including the trade credentials of the person that has made to frame . Some have less information then a normal receipt would . Of the 4 companies I buy new frames from in the US no 2 have the same set of details .

    The Dept of Infrastructure I think handles MSO's these days so sniff around them . Next time you are down I'll show you the different types I deal with but I won't publish any online . I looked at getting MSO certified when I ran the old shop but the insurance cost alone was crippling so I closed shop . Can help you out with what I learned when I looked into it too .
