I think I got confused with the welds on the bike on top of yours on the forum. At the very beginning of this forum tread, there’s a code that might fit your bike, check that and what you get against that year’s catalog, sorry I’m of not more help. Good luck
Your post made me read through this entire thread! - sadly I can't help with your query, however the placement of your V001 doesn't sit in the same place as the serial numbers typically do (on the underside of the BB shell), so may relate to your swing arm/rear triangle only?
My non-ti '93 Pine FRS doesn't have a code stamped where yours does, but carries the following on the BB shell;
I’m going to bump this and see if anyone can confirm which model of frame I have. I believe it’s an Indian fire trail due to what seems like butted tubes and an old sticker that was painted over. I couldn’t see any confirmation of the IFT model designation on the thread so thought I’d ask.
Looking at the 1992 catalogue this sticker matches the colour of the IFT graphics and painted pieces but as it’s only a sticker I’m reluctant to trust it. The down tube is pretty wide and the tapping test seems to confirm some butting which I don’t think was used on the nail trail of ‘92.
