1980 GL1100 VIN Number

Post by GhostQRRA » Mon Jul 23, 2018 8:52 am



I have just bought a 1980 GL1100 in West Africa and am trying to find out any background information reference the bike. The VIN# is SC02-2008614 and the previous registration was on an Ohio plate 66YWK which expired in October 2016. Any insight gratefully received.

Do you have any concerns the bike may have been stolen in the USA and then sent over to Africa?

Not really, it isn't the type of bike that sells readily here so can't see why someone's would go to the effort. If we were talking about a enduro or similar then that's a different story.

I can't tell you a whole lot about it, but the county sticker on the plate is county 25, which is Franklin county - which basically means it was registered (and lived in) the city of Columbus, or suburbs thereof.

Perhaps someone here might know who the original owner was?
