    I just acquired a Honda cub (C100) and I'm trying to identify the year of manufacturing. I emailed David Silver and gave him the VIN (frame number C100-D026634) and the engine number (C100E57199). They were unable to find the year of manufacturing; they only could tell me that the production run was from 1959-67. The bike has the "stubby" little rear light, not the bracket type, which from my research was changed after 62. I hope that someone can help me with this information and what the correct colours were for that bike. Greatly appreciated!

    There should be a paper label on the main part of the wiring harness that indicates the date of manufacture.
