The Team Mongoose and Supergoose frames are a little different. . Maurice was a team rider a recipient of one of the first two Streetbeats. I would say that in that 84-86 era the parts where what seperated the different models. They must have used the wrong stamp on it, they typically have a 4 or L4. Mach Ones and Interceptors from the 80s have the same 18. The bicycle must be in assembled condition and accompanied by the original, dated sales receipt for the bicycle.

After all, an ambiguous date is either January or one of the last three months of the year. We do not cover parts purchased and labor performed by another bike shop. Like everything else - condition, condition, condition. This one is made in the same Kinesis factory in Taiwan as the last two. He has well over a grand into it.
My wife told me if I brought home one more bike she will leave. Race a little, but mostly bombed fire trails in my home town with my best friend at the time who had a Redline 600a. So to start the decoding of these serial numbers. I bought my Floval Flyer from Ed as well as some graphite Tuffs for my Kappa project. I don't remember offhand what the component group was on an '87 Pro Performer, but if it's all original other than the levers, and was barely ridden with minimal wear, it's probably worth a few hundred. Some time late 1975 and onwards it became a single layer of steel, more oval and thinner in shape. This Limited Warranty gives the consumer specific legal rights.

Is the welder always identified by a single letter? Some of the Japanese factory's stamped the serial's on the rear dropout. Don't know what the 6 means in front of it. The brake tab on these frames is rectangular in shape. A feature of an early 1975 frame is the brake tab.
This was done to give better clearance for the chain. But, if you're doing a Hutch build - gotta have 'em. It is our guess that it was done this way to allow clearance for the squarer shoulder on Ashtabula forks. It will not identify the model of the bike, only the year the frame itself was manufactured. It was available until the end of manufacture in 1983.
Hi there good people I have been a casual and basic filemaker user for a number of years, starting with the simple form that was included with ClarisWorks all those years ago. I think when you say I should put something to help people distinguish different models race, freestyle etc. Finding a bicycle serial number Most bicycles have their serial number engraved beneath their bottom bracket, but sometimes serial numbers are found in other places. I have an 84 pro series and the serial number is 9841839. Some states and countries do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or warranties, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. Fatigue damage is a symptom of the frame being worn out through normal use.
Would a graph and list of serials be too much work to create. This is on the front of the bike. The next letter in the sequence is the month code. Will see if I have a pic I can post. If you search for 1234, you will only find bikes with serial numbers of 1234 and serials close to that - not a bike with serial number of 12345689.
Can't say for sure, never owned one or knew anyone with one. Then the actual calculation will become easy to construct - assuming the task is possible in the first place. J for the 10'th month October, 97 model. We have been told that when the company was sold the new owners only wanted complete boxed bikes and the rest of the stock of frames were destroyed. I have seen Mach Ones and Interceptors stamped with a 4 and I guess since they had the same frame specs as the normal Pro frame that they used the same Pro frames they used to build Pro Series on them.
This feature carried over for the first few years till the ashtabula forks were replaced with the more rounder style Tange made forks. As before, the letter indicates the month and the first number or the second digit in the sequence indicates the last number for that year. Good job I think that may be it. He is currently the state Liberal member for Hawksbury. It's just too obscure for most people to remember. The Serial has a build date of 2008, it was confirmed in the catalogue it was a 2009 model. If so, why not post it as an attachment to a Reply, so that I can get a better feel for the complete picture? After the company was sold to Service Cycle, it seems all frame production was moved to Tiawan.
