I used to own a 'Tech 300. Was under the impression the full range carried a holographic sticker / decal, denoting tubing and individual frame number. I don't remember a BB code. In the example below, I'm sure the 'AA...' prefix signified 1991, year one of production. Wish I still had it!!

It might be that the lug numbers 3 and 4 denote angles - ie 73 and 74 degrees.

Edit: Retrobiker 'Bikemeister [?2000]' I think used to produce Dyna Techs. Apologies, bit vague ... :)

Thanks for that. Yes there is the Reynolds sticker still in place with an AA code on it.

AA code is the serial number and does not match the frame number. My Dynatech 500 is B1540 (I think), B being the date code. Mind you Raleigh stampings were always a bit vague and my B loks like an 8 LOL

Hi, sorry to be a pain, all ive got is stamped on the BB shell is 0326. There is an indentation after the 6 which isn't a letter or number. The serial no on the Reynolds 2060 sticker is AA1005. Any of this any good?

The O could well be a D and the last letter may be missed completely....Raleigh were really quite hopeless.........on reflection very hopeless :(

The Hologram relates (I think) to the serial number of the tubing.

A picture of the bottom bracket and frame is worth a thousand words as they say :)

When I get round to stripping her, I'll post some pictures. Thanks for the advice so far..........I take it that all Dynatechs were made in Nottingham?
