Looks like the frame was originally from the production line for another region, but has been switched to the bikes current identity.

Could be that the factory dismantled a surplus of bikes for another market, and then rebuilt them for the UK market. I think that happens quite often towards the end of a particular model's life.

Could also be a grey-import spare frame thats been used to rebuild a UK write-off.
