I'm thinking a Saracen, actually. They did one (Maxtrax?) which had that sort of spec.

At first glance i thought Orange E?, but cant see a replaceable mech hanger, pretty sure some Orange frame numbers started with an A though.

Many frames have come up with that sort of serial number starting with and A.
As far as I know you cannot tell which brand it is from the serial number. It's a mass production place from seeing what has come up. Ordered to a spec I guess or picked out of a catalogue with a few tweaks sort of thing.

Going by the quality of the welding, my money is on it being made by A-Pro in Taiwan. The welds on the Shenzhen made alloy frames are not as consistent, although A-Pro made frames in both locations. Also with eyes on the dropouts I would say 7005 rather than 6061 T-6 alloy.

It could have been supplied to a number of UK brands.

Nice frame though :)

Hi

Thanks for all the replies, still non the wiser to the make but whats it matter - I'm only going to ride it.

Can anyone help with a download of the service manual for the Judy T2 forks, I can find every other model but not the T2s, I've got the parts list which hepled me identify that the forks are assembled correctly - but I can't find out for definate how much oil and what weight it should be.

Thanks
Tony.
