MId 80's would be my guess the vin should be on a plate on te second fron bumper mounting bar the one closest to the ground.

yeah your right, i didnt see his craigslist ad.

The one in the craigslist ad is a suzuki, not a honda.

lt230 shaft drive no rear suspension.

I have one in my shop that a guy wants me to restore.

Your right Mdopole I didn't look hard enough. under the headlight is the louvered plastics common to the suzuki or that era. just tell the guy to look on the engine cover it will have Suzuki on it.
