So how does it work, the two is the second year of the nineties?

Then the 04 is the month?

Guess the 0032 is the number made?? Or made that month??

Need to find some original forks for it now, just got some pepperonis that are a perfect fit at the mo :)

Afternoon,
I've just picked up a 17" Elite from eBay - a little tired in the lacquer department.

I'll post up the Serial tonight when I get in.
Intention is to build it up with M900 - maybe RC35s

What's the best way to strip the old lacquer off it?

And @ JimWise
Did you have your 2011 Elite on eBay until a week or so ago?
