I am trying to find out what it is but that vin number i can not seem to match. The closest i got was a 1980 YZ100. Put a pic on bikepics.com and the post the link.

Looks like '86 to me. Most stuff on it is the same as '85-90 or '91, I think. Looks nearly identical to our '89, except the frame color.

85 or newr is correct . The plastic changed from yellow to white in 85 ,and the black frame is most likely changed by owner, checking that number 3ml came up for the rear shock number but look again for the VIN on the motor or the steering head area behind the number plate. Frame /engine numbers starting with #3mk will be 89 with the frame coming from the factory painted white for the American bike. Frame is red for 85, 86 from Japan. The engine was black on the 85 I think but for colors in Canada that might be different?
