The Edge model was DA spec'd in the early years so I'm guessing that this was a Fury from 94 or 5.

mmm, I was thinking 97 edge frame and fork as it was also 6061 and GT decals are about right.

If I buy it is there any way of telling from the frame number?

If it's original spec 600 Ultegra it has to be a FURY, which by the way were also basically the same 6061 frame until they took the Fury Aero in 96.

Here's the spec list from the 94 Fury:

Serial number will give you the year and model. The road bikes were usually like this 94GTE5. This serial number is from a 94 model, GT Edge hence the "E" and the 5th built. I believe they used GTO on Fury's not GTF. My sons serial number is 96GTOXXX.

Yes I see, my serial number is GT941XXX. I suppose on your sons the 0 is a ZERO rather than an identifying letter. Just probably an earlier produced model in that year.
