    if there isn't a plate look closely to see if it's just stamped in the frame. My older Honda has it stamped in the frame on the fork neck and is hard to see.

    I believe that 81 was the first year for the required 14 digit VIN. I know this is true with cars, but probably with motos as well.

    17 digits after '81 I think. Some earlier bikes you add the model/series number to the stamp number on the frame ie; T140--------
