Here is my ebay bargain NOS '97Protrax frame - 14.99!

Gil did the decals for me.

I am currently building with all modern parts.. but with a retro look to pay homage to the Saracens of the mid/late 90's

Hope to have it finished soon.

Full story in bikes up to '97 section on here.

Cheers,

Chaser.

The Sahara's looking much better LGF, good work. Are those Ritchey Vantage rims?


Look like Vantage Comps to me.

Any news on that frame number LGF?

I've got E01 then over-stamped with E02 and underneath 0108 on my Tufftrax Elite :?

Maybe if we all put up our frame numbers with Model and production year we'll find a pattern?

Well, on my 20 1/2" 89 Tufftrax the serial number is:

T8903
0994

And on my slightly later 22 1/2" 89 Tufftrax it is:

T8906
5978

Suggesting (T for Tufftrax)YYMM for the top line, and just a number for the next.

This breaks down somewhat with the 17" (approx) 96(?) Rufftrax that my son has which is:

AC5K
00000054

Hmmm..... time to get Bletchley Park onto this.

Cheers
Steven
