The answer is that it is unlikely because of possible confusion with a 1.

Some 1972 season machine engines are seen with a / after the model prefix - B50T/ for example.

I suspect the intended number would be ZA7S 30158 which is in the 1952 season ZA7S frame sequence.

Can't be those numbers as frame numbers, like engine numbers started at 101.
A number under that was either a works bike or a special order which were usually numbered 001 to whatever the last one was .
Never seen a number with less than 3 digits.
