Newbie question

I have decided to look for an RC51 Nicky Hayden special. I just sold my 1974 Norton Commando and am looking for a similar classic motorcycle to ride.

My question is, do Nicky Hayden RC51s have a specific serial number? I want to make sure I am purchasing the genuine edition.

Thank you

Silver frame and swingarm NOT black and should have the signature on the tank

Well, then ... also ... white front "face plate" around the headlights instead of black. And, white on the sides of the tail piece instead of black.

But these things could all be faked since they fit on non-Hayden models.

Every single 2004 RVT1000r RC51 that was made for the US market is a Nicky Hayden issue.
Look at serial number. The 10th digit is the year. So it should be a 4. So is the 12th digit (not sure why it just is) on a RC51.
