Looks like an 82 K model.  Has been painted.  Exhaust isn't stock.

if it were 82, wouldn't it have a 17 digit vin?

Doesnt sound like a valid vin. My 78 starts with cb750 and then a series of numbers but I dont think it comes out to 17 characters.

the motor has a similar number on it.  I have seen a lot of these old frames with vin numbers like this.  the shop i got it from says it is late 70's.  They did not start the 17 digit vin till the 80's,

Possible it is a 79 then as it has some custom parts on it, notably the taillight.

gotta say that it looks a whole lot like my 80K [discounting the custom parts, of course].

a quick look at my VIN suggests the same [VIN the same length, RC01211*****
