Re: Honda Shadow VIN. Where Is It?
VIN's vary from country to country. In what country was the bike originally sold?

The one you need is probably the one on the frame.

You should be okay with the numbers etched into the frame and engine.

On the neck on the right side. All VIN numbers are stamped in the same location since they adopted the 17 digit system. It's also on the downtube of the right side on the manufaturer label of bike discription. If you don't see it in one of those two locations then the frame is not original.

Re: Honda Shadow VIN. Where Is It?
Is the bike exclusive to China/Asia market? If so, then the frame number you are looking at is probably correct. The motor is a common Honda setup. Other asian manufaturers have been coping the motor for decades. You sould not have problems sourcing parts, even if they are not OEM they will probably match up to OEM fine- so use them.

Re: Honda Shadow VIN. Where Is It?
The Chinese Honda VT doesn´t have a VIN because the frame has been made of people´s army surplus bed legs. There should be a yellow sticker under the batery tray clarifying the quality controllers number from the bed factory, you can contact them for certification.

And I though you were going to say, "the pink slip"

Don't say "pink slip" around Buz. I makes him want to look at his closet of full underwear.
