Where's my VIN?

    Hello! I'm new to the forum and also just bought my first motorcycle. It's a fixer upper. I want to get some parts for it but I'd like to first confirm the year/ make/ model. I found the sticker behind the front forks but it only has a "shorty" VIN. It's supposed to be a 1980 Yamaha 400 Special. Any other way to get the VIN or at least confirm what I have? Any help would be awesome and thank you in advance.

    The motor will have it and it should also be stamped into the neck. Most pre 82/83 have "short" vin numbers. Post some pics of the bike we love pics.
