    I have a lockset for a 1985 Honda Shadow VT-500c.
    Lock code is A62.
    Need the 5-digit code so I can cut a key.

    Yes, the local locksmith will happily push the button
    on his machine for $25. That ain't gonna happen.
    Building a bike outa spare parts is turning into a
    financial disaster. Gotta cut corners where I can.

    Anybody got a code book...and a desire to help?
    Thanks, mike
    return address is valid

  2. Nope. Choose another locksmith. Here, the standard charge is £6 for a
    key (call it 10 bucks) or two for £10.

  3. Here the locksmith charges $25 for if he has to
    pick the lock. $5 if you give him a key code.

    dealer doesn't do keys. they send me to the locksmith
    who wants $25.

    Have had some interesting times on alt.locksmithing.
    Interesting...not helpful times.
    Somebody did finally send me the key numbers, but I can't
    make 'em work. Probably my error in reverse-engineering
    the depth numbers from another key; but I wouldn't be at all
    surprised to learn that someone sent me a bogus key code to
    yank my chain. Naw...nobody would do that...would they? ;-(
    I'll just keep on filing...I got all winter...

  6. Al the Honda dealers I know make keys from codes. I would try another
    dealer. If the code isn't right then your only choice is a locksmith.
