    Yes it is. No rivet holes is a very good indicator. The 164... Vin # too, is definitely a indicator. Pretty sure silvertags went well up over 200... on the Z50s

    Yes it is. Looks to not have had too rough of a life if the tail light mount is still there. Be sure to check the frame rails by the battery box for cracks.

    I think the frame should be date coded on the back side of that axle plate where the serial number is- as long as the chain has not come off and damaged the area. Another sign is the tail light frame mount. Tanks are date coded as well underneath the rubber mounting pad but that might not be the original tank
