Can you help me with the year? Serial number is just over 1,000.. I think 89? 1" steer tube

It's a 19"... Debating if I should keep it... I really wanted a Rocky Mountain Titanium frame but this may have to do for now...

Awesome welding. Surely that's pure GH's handiwork. More pics of the frame and build please.

Thanks! I have attached some more pics... any info on it would be great...

Question.. how do I install the rear brakes? It has no holes for the spring peg???

It came with maguras when I bought it (they don't need the hole)

thanks

I think it would be 1989, maybe 1990. This is the information I have:

1-59 (1988)
60-139 (1989)
3518-3604 (1990)

You notice a distinct lack of serial numbers between 139 and 3518. The WTB Greasegaurd BB, straight chainstays, and rear brake cable noodle all point to 89/90. The head badge was probably added later. I don't know when those became common. Certainly not in 1989/90.

I would agree with 1989. I'm not sure how the missing serial numbers 140-3517 (as per Classen's post) ran but I do know that 1343 was January 1990!

Maguras can be made to fit u brake studs by flipping the mounts.
