Anyone know how to date the bontrager frames from the early 90's? I just bought one and it doesn't look to have any stamping at all. Also appears to have had new decals put on, so they're no help either.

Thanks

A very broad question and more difficult than you can imagine.
If you just want your frame identified take some pics and post them up.
You can use the "search" oPtion above if you want to learn the history of Bontys.

Flowers help. Be sure to book a good restaurant.

This is handy ..... def a race, maybe 92 or 93. Has the pulley and you can tell it originally had the earlier square decals.

He actually pictures the front derailleur stops correctly, but then describes them incorrectly inversed, btw.

Thanks for the resource.
