Any new Cyclones/Psyclones with serial numbers around?


I can add to the list of Psyclones without serial numbers.

Paint looks original to me, though I can not prove it. It is quite thin and very even and no sign of a number.

Interesting indeed. Although the Psyclones were hand made and so maybe they played around with different tubesets?

Hello everyone,

Like an idiot, when I submitted my Cyclone (20", red, U-brake) for warranty (crack more than paint deep across one of the fillet-brazed joints) back in 1993, I didn't ask for it to be repaired and repainted in Longmont, and accepted credit towards a new frame (RTS-1, d'oh!).

I remember the serial number as GTL 0016, not GTL 9116, as the other serial numbers would suggest is correct. Perhaps it was a pre-production frame, or perhaps I am just getting old.

Anyway, while I would love to think that someone saved it from the scrap heap at Riteway East, and that one of those two serial numbers will eventually end up here, I suspect that we'll never know. It would be interesting to learn of another "00" serial number for early Cyclones.

Cheers,
The Kid

Correct, but no one bit at $1000 so I elected to keep it.
