    I just picked up my third ZL900 (I love these bikes). I was doing some work on the bike, I turned the tank over and there is a signature. I don't know of any significance to it. I figured that i would ask the experts here if they ever saw anything like this. Thanks.

    What's your last 4 digits of SN. It could be someone on the line left their mark on the last one rolling off?

    :hello: To me it looks like 2-16-85. Maybe the month, day & year D. R. bought the bike. Or the first owner was a Doctor. :laughing7:.

    I've seen several with the dates but not any signatures. I think the dates were put on the day of manufacture.

    It could be someones initials but I doubt it. QC marks a lot of parts and after marking so many of them, they start to look like signatures.
