i believe it is something like this http://www.khsbicycles.com/Images/serial_numbers.gif

for our generation of frame the serial is found stamped under the bottom bracket. thats where i found mine.. it was under the plastic cable guide that sits there, just relieved the tension on the cables, took off the 1 screw that held the guide in place and read the serial.

btw guys i picked up another old khs.. a 91 descent.. i'll put up some more details and pictures when im more happy with its condition.. lol

Thats a great example (assuming that is a current pic). :D
Mine has retired from active duty, and hasn't retained as many original parts as yours - I simply raced the rims, front & rear mechs, shifters, brake levers, brakes, headset, and pedals to death!

In fact the only original parts that remain are the frame, forks, seat post, cranks, and (bizarrely) the hubs! Although I cringe at the noises that eminate from them each time I ride it :cry:

Nice KHS's guys. I just bought this off "the bay". Looking forward to building it up. I think it just qualifies as retro, 1997 i think.
