    Default vin tag

    I have a 1982 GS1100GL i'm working on with a faded(cant read) vin tag. Does anyone with a 1982 GS1100GL have a readable tag the can take a picture of so I can have one made.

    Been looking all over and cant find anything on the internet.

    What's the purpose of restoring or re-creating a VIN tag? The VIN is stamped into the metal of the frame at the headstock.

    Talk to Brian at BD Designs brian@bddesigns.ca he fixed me up with an identical replacement.

    The website is a little demanding requiring multiple images from different angles - which I didn't have and couldn't get but I talked to Brian and he got me sorted. Your bike is listed as one he can supply. Good luck.

    Thanks Ill try to contact him to see if he has info on the GS1100GLZ model . Yes the vin Number is stamped into the frame and that tag is not really needed to title. The tag is normally replaced when restoring bikes to the original condition. It does have additional info as to the build date. The only thing I can see on mine is a number 12 which I assume is the month the bike was built. Since its a 82 I assume it has a build date of 12 / 81. It also has info on the gross vehicle weight and tire sizes.

    In California you need it to register an out of state bike... you have to have both the stamp and a sticker
