II. SERIAL NUMBER LOCATIONS
Serial numbers can be found in the following locations on various models. Note that the serial number is a five or six digit number which follows the model designation (For example Li150S*443267) and that the next group of numbers beginning with the letters "IGM" are merely Italian government commission numbers similar to Department of Transportation numbers in the USA.

A.  Li, TV, SX, GP and Serveta Models - The frame number is in the engine compartment on the right hand side of the main frame tube under the fuel tank. The engine number on all models except for TV175 Ser.I is on top of the motor directly in front of the shock mount and is somewhat hidden by the gear and clutch linkages. On the TV175 Ser.I it is on top of the motor behind the right hand motor mount.
III. SPECIFIC MODELS
Li Family (click on a specific model to see serial number info and download a parts book):


LI Golden SpecialA.  Series III - Includes all Li125, Li150, Li150 Special, SX150, TV175, TV200, SX200, Grand Prix 125/150/200 (also known as 125/150/200 DL) models produced after 1962. Most parts for these models are readily available, although some body parts are becoming scarce. Commonly called the Slimstyle Range, Series III models are distinguishable by a speedometer which is of a sort of clam shell shape. It is flat on the sides, tapering out larger at the top, and the top and bottom are rounded. Another distinguishable feature of the Series III is the separate horn grille which attaches vertically to the front of the horncasting with two countersink screws at the bottom. Li125 & Li150 models have a round headlight and rim, Grand Prix models have a rectangular headlight and rim, and all remaining Series III models have a round headlight with a hexagonal rim. The first Series III models produced in 1962 share several characteristics with earlier Series II models. When this is the case, the earlier variation of the part is called the pre-mod part. Mid-1960's models will often share pre- and post-mod features. By the end of the production run of Italian Series III models (which included all GP and SX models), all of the post-modification features (such as 6 pole ignition systems which have 4 wires coming from the magneto) had been adopted.
