Post Chetak Model Identification / Vin help? Reply with quote
Hi.

I've been a Chetak owner for 2 days now. It was sold to me as a 1997 and supposedly 150cc, but I think the seller may have been a little creative (!) and am wondering if there's any further info I can get regarding the exact model from the chassis number?

I've got 20C96J06526 from under the engine cowl - so I'm thinking it's a retro Classic. Is it possible to work out year of manufacture as well? I'm going to need some wiring diagrams very soon, so knowing what to look for would be great.


Any help much appreciated.

For motorcycles/autos/scooters that were manufactured for import to the US they will receive paper work here that reflects the date the import paperwork was processed. Manufacturers commonly include the date of 'manufacture' as part of the items serial number, but not always. Some manufacturers will "hide" the date of manufacture using some secret code. Chances are your scoot was probably made around the date on your paperwork.

So a scooter could have been made in Nov 66 but didn't arrive in the US until Feb 67, in that case your US paper would make it a 67 "model".
