Hi guys
I wondered if anyone could help with a frame number id on a frame i am looking at , its stripped of paint and i have only seen pictures but im 99% sure its an M2 .
The frame number is 91T04446 , would this make it a 1990 or 1991 and is it a M2 team or an S works M2 or a stumpjumper M2 ? there seems to be a bit of confusion over this in previous posts .
Oh and what would the colour options be ? i have seen silver with yellow decals and " stumpjumper" on the downtube and team red with " specialized " on both top and downtubes ?
Hope its not cracked or anything like my old one did BITD :cry:
Cheers Paul

I'll try to remember to check the frame number on my 1992? when I get home if that helps. I can't really offer you any more information than that, as I don't know that much about them myself.

Mine is

91T04060

Not decided how to build it up or even which fork to use

Color is not original as it has a label on saying sprayed by a company (cant remember which one)

Hi , thanks for the pics . it does look just like that so thats handy , the shape of the head tube gusset and the gear cable guide look the same too . does yours have riveted brake cable guides on the top tube ? i have noticed small differences in all those areas with other M2 frames.
I have taken the plunge and bought it for £8.99 anyway ! i i am waiting with baited breath to see if its a usable frame or a big paperweight :facepalm:
Cheers Paul.
