Sorry if covered somewhere else, I searched. I removed my driver side rear wheel recently to do some frame work. I found a plate attached to the frame which what looks like days built and then some other numbers. Is this common?

I'm not sure about the welded on data plate, but my partial vin is directly stamped in the same spot on the frame.

Not factory if I recall.
Wonder if it's not the original frame ?

You should have a partial vin, the last portion on the passenger side rear, right above the wheel opening.
