That's where I thought it would be (like all the others) but I cannot see one there, if it's faint though it'll need the paint stripping properly. Still I don't need one as it's very easy to tell what frame/year it is. Just for completion sake really.
It's the first year they used 'A' in the serial to signify an Altitude. Interesting they don't put a year in though, they did later on from what it seems.
Interesting. I still own a '93 Hammer and there's no indication of year from the frame's serial number either. Same with my 1992 Stratos. Can't recall the serial number on my 2000 Vertex though?!? I wonder what year that started?
On Steve's frame, the rest of the number looks like '002245', I think. But everything after the 'RMA' is hard to read, and I'd be hard pressed to really commit to any part of that number.
