    Kind of a bummer. It would have been nice to confirm once and for all my bike is a prototype instead of speculate based on listed frame numbers in books, and fit and finish differences between my frame and the one I gave to Larry.

    The first production frame numbers I have from my Honda 650E manuals are:

    Canada: RC120*DM000013
    Elsewhere: RC12-2000009

    I think Larry told me yours and I didn't think to check it against those figures. What # was yours?

    His motor # is RC12E-2000004. I don't have a picture of the head stock vin, but it matches the motor.

    Looks like that falls very early. Maybe Honda won't give the whole spectrum of numbers, but maybe if you presented them with photo evidence of that vin plate, they could confirm or deny what it really is? Very well may stump them to see an early prototype in the hands of a member here.....no less being restored at the hands of Larry. I bet they could be pushed a bit to cough up more data if they knew the depth of experience here on the forum.

    I have had to take on a lot more work in the past couple of weeks which has meant I haven't even had time to log in here until now... so only a couple of new articles:

    Info on the Japanese GL500 Wing <-- Scarce info for now, going to try to gather some more.

    Featured Build: Murray's Super Deluxe

    Featured Build: "The Red" CX500, claimed 220km/hr top speed

    Featured Build: Chris Fielding's CX500

    I did a piece on Honda year code identification:

    https://motofaction.org/motorcycles/...dentification/

    Added a contact page so people can make article suggestions etc. without having to use Facebook or PMs:

    https://motofaction.org/contact/

    I started doing an online carb cleaning guide - many of these posts have been in draft form for years, finally decided to get around to putting it into a cohesive bunch of posts:


    In lieu of me having the time to make the more interactive parts manuals I wanted to do I put up the Honda ones as downloadable PDFs. Nothing really new here:

    CX650E: https://motofaction.org/motorcycles/...50e-eurosport/

    CX500TC: https://motofaction.org/motorcycles/...-cx500tc-turbo
    CX400E/CX500E: https://motofaction.org/motorcycles/...cx500e-sports/

    GL700 Wing: https://motofaction.org/motorcycles/...ng-interstate/

    1982 Custom: https://motofaction.org/motorcycles/...ustom-cx500Cc/

    1978 CX500: https://motofaction.org/motorcycles/...978-cx500-pdf/
