Hi Everyone,

Can anyone tell me if the VIN number that is stamped on to the frame is done by machine or done by hand? I'm thinking about purchasing a used bike and the VIN number looks weird. The VIN Sticker does match the one that is stamped in on the frame, however the first few numbers looks like it's done by machine and the last few numbers look like it's been done by hand. Can someone confirm that this? Is this how Honda stamps their VIN numbers?


Thanks!​

yeah if the vin number matches but looks weird, it can be that someone crashed the bike and bought another frame and had it hand punched vin.. I would carfax it and confirm and also confirm on the original title.

oh if by factory, i'm pretty sure it's done by some form of computerized punch press then someone sitting there lining up each character and punching it by hand

Ordered the Carproof and it came back clean. I everything looks good. I guess i'm just paranoid.
