That's sweet, nice freebie. We seem to have the same taste in bikes. I just sold my KZ650 SR last year.

Will be watching this build for sure!

Just sent you a PM regarding the owner's manual.

I'm not 100%, but I believe so. My VIN plate is missing as well so I'm not sure, but with all the other Honda's I've owned I think they were the same. I used the frame one to transfer mine, however they said it was never in their system :eek: maybe this is the reason.

I'll bounce the question off the guys on the MB5 List to see if they know.

I love the mb5. I would like to have one. Or at least the front end and rear wheel. They would look soo good on my 125 cafe.

Sweet, love the seat. That's the direction I'd like to go with the cushion, so I'll be following this. :) Going to look good.

Glad to hear positive feedback on Perk LLC as I may need to do some business there in the future. Heard good things about them.
