Frame numbers, type and color codes

Source: Revue Moto Technique No 68, ETAI, Paris, France, 1996
Sampled by Christos Zervos. Many, many thanks, Christos!

Frame numbers you will find on the right side of the stearing stem, or on a sticker on the right frame tube. Color code (f.e. YR151M (my bike)) and type code (f.e. XL600VJ), you will find on a sticker on the right frame tube below the seat. Color descriptions came in french originally, I tried to translate them to English as good, as I can ;-)).
I hope, these things are valid all over the world, even though I can't guarantee it ...

Have a look at the colors. Well done, Hans! ;-)
