Re: Possibly altered VIN number

Well you could have done that on your own in the first place.

Problem solved. I guess my eyesight is just better than yours. I checked two other 929s today and they all had last three digits slightly different :-)

Thanks again

Only if they are within the same state.

Re: Possibly altered VIN number

I did a search on the VIN and everything seemed to turn up great.

As far as the bike goes:
It is a Japanese mande bike made in Ham. Japan. It is definitely a 2000 year model. All appears to be clear and clean.

There is nothing in my research though that jumps out to depict an HRC bike.

So if I understand this right there is an HRC version of the 929 frame ?

P.S. - I looked for the discussion between abtech and Baketech but could not find it
I think the 929 was released as a basic racer version in 2000 in Japan, but it didn't have any lights or a harness that would support them as well as different bodywork and electronics. If this is a street bike (and not a racer that was subsequently made into a street bike), then it wouldn't be an HRC unit.

The discussion with Bake was via email, so I doubt you'll find it on the board .

All I can say is, "Post the VIN".

Do some research then, maybe it's an HRC. You never know, you could be about to get more than you're paying for. That would be a rare instance for me. Usually it goes the other way. I pay much more than an item is worth.

This is well documented. Baketech and I were discussing it a few months back. I believe the 03s' on were "more" standardized, but several of the original 00 models were entirely hand scribed with an electronic scribing tool.
