All,



Since only 3058 ZB50's were manufactured for the US market in 1988, Which bike do you have?



All the Vins were exactly the same except for the last 4 digits of the consecutive unit number.



The first ZB50 sold to the public was 0006

The last ZB50 sold to the public was 3064



Who has the earliest production bike?

Who has the last bike made for American Honda?

My personal ZB50 is #846 out of 3058 made for the US market.



Purchased in 2005 from the 3rd owner with 515 miles.

I have no idea on the ZB50's made for Europe.
is there any idea of how many RTs and Monkey Rs Honda produced?



were ZB50s models only sold in US, Canada, and Europe markets?

No ideas on Monkey R's and you are correct on the ZB50's.

US models have a 0 or zero in this spot.



00XXXX



Canadian ZB50's have a 5 or five in position 12 of the vin.



50XXXX



Plus, their speedos are in KM/h rather then MPH.


Third difference....The Canadian ZB also has the owners manual with a red cover and has both French & English languages.

ZB50's weren't crated in pairs...
