Help Decoding VIN Number.

Hey all. I just recently purchased a Honda ATC. I have no idea what year or size it is but I got a great deal so I couldn't pass it up. I paid 100$ cash and it runs, does not smoke, and cranks on the first pull, just needs minor work. Anyway the model stickers are gone and rust has claimed most of my vin number. I was hoping someone on here might could decipher what I have and see if they can get any info from it. The VIN is JH308500CCI05783. I don't know how much of it is accurate due to the rust but any info would be helpful. Thanks.

P.S. I know its only 16 digits, I couldn't the other one because of the rust.

Chris, Try making up/guessing the last number/letter. That's the best that anyone else could do.

Well from what I can gather its a 1982. It looks to be a 185(s) maybe. Its the one pictured below.

I posted this on another forum and this is what the guy told me.

"The trunk on the back, and the 25x12x9 tires tells me it's a atc200. The plastic tank, fork extenders, and pull starter is worth what you paid for it. Nice score!!"

I'm pretty sure he is correct but I also know there were different models of the 200 (200m, 200s, etc.) so during my search for parts what should I look for? Are the parts interchangeable for the most part? I'm just trying to get all the info I can before I waste a ton of money on wrong parts.
