Hi, Oliver.
Thanks for your answer.
Yep, They're the original forks. Not the original paint, but quite nice anyway... Will keep it.
Cheers,
Chus

Has the fork been repainted? Guessing not. Serotta usually painted the fork to go with the frame but they were selling some natural Ti frames by 1998. So your frame might have been painted black or perhaps was not painted at all.

The forks have a clear coat, no paint there. This suggests the frame had a brushed finish.
Thanks for the info. A great bike. And so nice...

Did you have a look through the linked thread to see if anyone posted a serial number that was close?

Another option is to search the classifieds for Legends. You might come across a near serial number there.

What Serotta model is this?
 
Hello everyone,

Can someone help ID this bike? The serial number is "CCL 62 010" . Thanks, it could be my first Serotta!

So sorry, Oliver. Hadn't read your answer.
I will follow your advise regarding classifieds. The closer the sn, the closer the date. I could not find a proper sn in the link.
Cheers,
Chus

I did some checking. This post has the closest serial number to yours that I found:

After 20+ years with my beloved Lemond Zurich, I finally got my dream bike, Serotta Concours ti. Serial# CT 54 156

Does that mean it was 156th Concours Ti built? Safe to assume it was made 1999?

It's in great condition. Paint and decals are almost flawless. Did a 30 mile ride on it and already love it.

Hi,
That means my Legend was built circa 2000.
Thanks again, Oliver, for your help.
Cheers,

Do serial #'s help figure out geometry?

My Ottrott says OS 55 521.

It's a 55 top tube, that I deduced through divine intervention...

The serial number itself doesn’t reflect geometry, just Serotta’s frame size. So your bikes frame size is a 55 (the 55 in the serial prefix). See the Serotta 2004 geo chart here for dimensions and angles: https://forums.thepaceline.net/showthread.php?t=171913

Yes 156th Concours built. Might be 1999 or 2000. Mine is number 539 and I was told it was built in 2002. If it was the first Concours built in 2002, that means they averaged about 180 frames a year. If it was the last built, that brings the per year average down to about 135.

Thanks for the info. I was telling my riding buddies that I'm finally in the 21st century.... but that may not be entirely true :D LOL!
