Wcc cfl frame vin issue...help

I'm looking at a CFL to the guy out of state has for sale. I had one years ago, and never finished the build due to financial issues and sold it in the middle of the build. This bike is done and titled but the problem is the title has a Harley VIN number, starting with 1 HD, and it is stamped on the side of the down tube near the neck. He has a long story of someone else built it, he knows nothing about it, all this other stuff. The neck looks to me like it is cast not machined like CFL frames were. It does have the CFL serial number on the front of the front engine mount, starting with 1 CFL, and it is an 06 frame, but I don't remember mine having that flat plate near The Knack. It does have the spider web gusset, and the wells around the gusset and around the neck are pretty much immaculate but I'm wondering if someone had cut the neck off and put a Harley neck on it because they were too stupid to do it the right way. Here are a couple of pics. This guy claims that he did not build it and the state where he lives issues their own Vin but I know for a fact they're not going to do the issue a Harley VIN number, nor is the title going to say 1986 Harley Davidson on it. Okay, I do have pics, but I'm not sure how to attach them on here. I'm kind of old school and this is my first day in this forum.

I would steer clear of any bike with VIN or paperwork issues. It always winds up being more of a hassle than it's worth. CFLs are not so rare that you can't find another in similar condition with clean numbers.
