    Hinckley VIN number's & letters identification Triumph

    Triumph Hinckley VIN number's & letters identification


    Ok this is a work in progress and its confusing as numbers are placed different with UK and US exports (maybe even Oz)

    SMTT J****G******* 2007 Bonneville. purchased Australia

    SMTT J****TM****** 2002 Bonneville. Purchased Australia

    SMTT T************ Example of Thailand Bonny vin Purchased UK or here

    SMT***DJ*TJ****** 1995 T/bird. Purchased Singapore

    SMT***DJ*TJ****** 1995 U.S Imported T/bird engine

    SMTTC***DMT****** 1996 Sprint Purchased in Oz.


    The 5th (11th digit in US & singapore) tells ya where it was made; J = the Hinckley factory in England ... T = Thailand factory.

    "J" is for Jacknell Road,Hinckley

    Example Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) US & UK VIN's

    Using: SMT TC 340 C F J 100001

    SMT - manufacturers I.D code
    TC - Model type
    340 - Model spec
    C - engine number
    F - Final Drive sprocket ratio
    J - Country of Production
    TC - Model type
    100001 - Chassis ID number
    .
    or SMTT J 340 C F TC J 10001

    SMTT - manufacturers I.D code
    J - Country of production
    340 - Model spec
    C - engine number
    F - Final Drive Sprocket ratio
    TC - Model Type
    10001 - Chassis ID number
    ................
    At this stage it appears Manufacturers ID code can be SMTT Or SMT
    Am pretty sure US Vin is correct But not so sure re ours and UK one (This stage believe both UK & Oz are same)

    G =

    TM =

    Vin can identify:

    World region: Europe, UK etc
    Manufactured in: Great Britain, Thailand
    Year:

    But not yet sure how as this is as far as I have got so far & may need amending
    But will add more to posting when find it

    If others are prepared to show their vin letters (only) here that would be helpfull Also what year/model the bike is.

    Still a bit of work to do Boof but thanks Can you actually send me whole 17 vin. But put * for the numbers as I am using others vin's to work out model spec codes etc. And otherwise your vin shows that J and T not always used !!!! Bugger it

    Assume that they use year of production instead of country of production in these cases? But will need a lot of Vin's to cross check this

    I think it's also stamped on the frame.
