What would you like to do?
- The National Insurance Crime Bureau NICB website will do an instant, free check on VIN numbers and tells you if the car has been stolen, or totaled. It gives links to some other sites that are reasonably priced that will give you more detailed info. See Sources and Related Links for more information.
- I was researching this question too, as I am getting ready to buy a used Honda SHadow. It Depends on the state and how much access they provide available to the public through their website. For example, I'm in Ohio, and the BMV website offers a title look-up link. I don't have the title yet, but I do have the VIN and the link offers you to either enter the title number or identification number. I entered the VIN in the ID space. Sure enough it brought up the history as well as the title number, I then cross-checked the info.
- It depends on what information you want to be checked. There are lots of places that can decode your Motorcycle VIN. This can tell you information such as Make, Model, CC, Year, Place of Manufacture etc
- However if you want to get a full History Report on the motorcycle then you may have to pay for this service. This report can tell you if the bike is listed as stolen, had a major accident or has outstanding finance.
- See Sources and Related Links for more information about free checks.

Digit 1: Nation of origin "1" = U.S., "2" = Canada, "W" = West Germany Digits 2: Manufacturer Digit 3: Model Digits 4 to 8: Vehicle Description Series These digits represent i…tems such as the car or truck line, series, body type, restraint system, and engine. Since they are assigned at the manufacturer's discretion, they are not always in the same order. For example, General Motors uses positions (4) and (5) for car-line series, position (6) for body style, position (7) for the restraint system (type of seat belts, etc.), and position (8) for engine type. On the other hand, Ford uses position (4) for the restraint system, (5) for the designation, (6) and (7) for the body type, and position (8) for the engine. Digit 9: Check Digit This digit is mathematically derived from values assigned to the other 16 digits. The check digit will determine whether a VIN is a valid number, or not. Digit 10: Year of Manufacture Digit 11 - Assembly Plant Digits 12 to 17: Production Number This is the sequential number that is assigned to the vehicle as it leaves the plant. It tells you what number on the assembly line your car was. Car lines can start anywhere between 000000 and 999999. Furthermore, please note that there has been instances where the sequential production number of a car exceeded the published total car output for that model year! How can that be? There could be a production number gap, for whatever reason. Or maybe some prototypes were included in there. Or perhaps the total production number is wrong... who knows?
