+1 on the 20 RTT FROs. I could probably add another 5 to Mk's list.

I'd also be interested in the serial.

Oh, cool bike! 8)


EDIT. Realized in the OP you stated no serial. Duh.

These are Frank words, not mine. I don't know about the quantity.

My FRO has the frame # 604

But Frank told me, he can't say something about the frame #, he must see the details about the frame, then he can say where it had built and who did built it.

Mine is SN 601, round TT, simplex drops, BMX HT

Edited: No chainstay gusset, no 34.9 seat tube flare

I'm trying to figure out what color to paint it, it's beat up pretty bad and needs new paint. Sad thing is it's not my size...

Sorry for the TH Mikey!

Yes, we only looking for round TT, Simplex drop outs, BMX HT, no chainstay gusset and no 34.9 seat tube bulge

Has your frame been upgraded with seat tube sleeve and chainstay gusset? The frames without the chainstay gusset/34.9 seat tube bulge are very rare. The chainstay could crack with more use as many (though not all) did.

Can't believe mine has no serial... :?

Just in case I'm missing it somewhere, where exactly should / could it be?

I'm sure it does. They are very faint and a thick coat of paint will cover them up. They are located under the BB shell.

sorry for google translation, my english isn't so good for that question.
