A bit worried about my new Honda Shadow!
I have just bought a Honda Shadow (I owned a similar one a few years ago). It was a real mission getting it, and a bit of a rush. The guy seemed really trustworthy, so I don't think he has tried to decieve me in anyway, but I'm a bit confused. The bike has only done 8000 miles, and is in very good condition.
It was advertised as 2011 model. The MOT and V5 reg docs say it's a VT 750 C2-8 (I'm not sure what the 8 is?) When I got there, I looked on teh reg documents and it says date of first registration is 2011. So I thought that was fine, and it looked so new and had done few miles.
I just got back and looked at the VIN number on the bike. When I enter it, it comes up saying it is a 2008 model! Can anyone help me out here, have I been cheated, or am I missing something? Here is the VIN :
I'd really appreciate any help regarding this
