Default Honda VIN Help

     

I'm looking at a 2001 cr250. The VIN does not look to be modified in any way, but it's incomplete. From what I've seen it should be jh2me033---------. However, all it has is "me03- 1950178". Anybody know what could be going on here???

Not too urgent any more since the bike sold, but I'm still intrigued if anyone has any info.

It is 2001 cr250.

Me03 = cr250r

5th digit is year code.
1 = 2001

Agreed. The question is not "what year is the bike?" Rather, it is: why is the VIN missing so many characters?

All Honda motorcycles had 11 digit vins through 1995. Some countries outside of the US kept the 11 digit vin longer.

Interesting. Perhaps this bike was brought in... I am about 15 min from the border with Mexico.

That would be a good bet.
