As you can see, the great EMC marking system has just died, precision and order are gone...
Of course this is only a joke - all the important information has been removed from the BB cover and moved to the Card - about that in Chapter 3


Left: U06 570 50
Right: 16/100 L7030
This is an absolutely unusual designation for the 2006 built Corsa Extra 7-Eleven limited series
U06 570 - one serial number
L7030 - second serial number
50 - frame size
16/100 - 16th frame out of 100 built in this series


The only marking is the frame size, there is not even a serial number....this is the frame from the 2008/2009 inventory after Eddy's divestiture - the end of EMC for me
