Re:

I don't know how to date them or the bikes in particular, but best guess is July 1996 (possibly getting into a 1997 model time).

That is first two is place that made them sort of thing, third the year and 4th the month.

I could be completely wrong.
Wait till somebody that knows the bikes and the serials comes along.

Edit
They may ask you to look at the right stay in the bottom picture, the dirty line that's just under the weld. Check it, could be a crack.
The other stay seems to have been rewelded at some point?

By stay, I mean stay bearing mount thingy.

Re:

That looks like a repair on the left,the weld bead should be neat like on the right.There appears to be surface prep work pre welding around the repair(scratches from wire wool).Looks like the left cracked and was repaired and the right is going that way too,it definitely looks like a crack.I wouldnt invest too much time or money into it.

Re:

A quick clean up to remove excess polish and yes I did have the frame repaired 14 years ago as I have owned it 20 + years! Love this bike that much don't want it to be coke cans yet! Original question still stands any information on its date and where it was made please cheers.
