    Need vin number information

    Can anyone help with identifying vin number 4971227.

    It appears to be a 1975 BMW R 90/6.

    This bike has a lot of later years parts on it, so identification is a struggle..

    The owner has had a stroke and is of no help with titles or registration information.

    Thanks

    Don

    Go to this site (among others):

    http://www.bmw-z1.com/VIN/VINdecode-e.cgi

    Typing in the VIN says it is an October 1975 R90/6. This makes it a 1976 model.
