Concours Ti - in search of year of making
 
Hi Serotta friends
Just recently bought a Concours Ti with a 1“ ahead tube. Scrolled all the possible catalogues but couldnt make out year if production. Frame number is CT 55 684 Any one able to help me?
Appreciate it, cheers

I have a Concours with serial number CT 54-745, so just a bit newer than yours.

Has 3D dropouts but not the oversize ones. It has the ones with a pin hole on the inside face.

Has downtube shifter bosses.

I looked up the 2000 catalog. Shows the pin hole dropouts on page 2/52 and the Concours on page 17/52 with downtube shifters and described on page 46/52 as having down tube boss/cable stops.

So mine looks like it could be a 2000 model. I haven't looked at any catalogs earlier than that.

I did however look at the 2001 catalog. The Concours had the bigger 3D oversize dropouts and the shifter bosses on the head tube not the downtube. So mine is not a 2001 or later model.

Thanks Dave Kirk for posting the catalogs.

Keep in mind that Serotta made running changes on their frames throughout their production and as such didn't necessarily have 'model years'. Hopefully you can find someone with the same model you have that also has the build sheet, which would pin down a build date. Then perhaps you could extrapolate when yours may have been constructed.
