Strange VIN number

your DMV.

Note, these will probably not line up too well, It's that ol' Yahoo formatting

My bike has a serial number, 100401, but the official registration documents show the VIN number to be "2100401" So am I correct in guessing, ignoring the fact that the VIN is totally bad, that my bike is a first generation PC,

      I was actually getting the feeling that the bike was a US import, and the local registration agency typed the first series of numbers they found into their terminals :) 2 points I don't understand, if you could explain :) - What is

        Daniel, I don't know what the letters mean. I pulled that off the Official Honda Parts manual page. Don't know how they designated engine/frame serial #'s either. --- In

    Hi Daniel, Do any/some/all of the European countries subscribe to the 17 character "base" (for lack of a better term) VIN that is used in North America? Same construction? Interesting, if so. When the PC came out, I'm pre
