No, there is some confusion in some of the serial # discussion.

"8" (1988) "08" (August) "54" (54th bike built that month)

Components are a mish-mash of Campy Record wheelset with 8 speeds (it's a Sachs and 130 OLD so one assumes it's a freehub, although the hub itself has no telltale freehub bulge), Shimano Tricolor crankset, FD and brakeset, and a DA 7402 RD and shifters. All of the components would therefore seem to be newer vintage than the frame.

Did Serotta make Davis Phinneys as early as 1980? It doesn't have the later asymmetrical rear stays and they seem pretty straight to me.

Judging by the seat tube angle and the monostay, I'd say that's a Tri Colorado. The paint job was common in 1991 and 1992. It's a 58 cm.

Are you sure about the TB part? We can add it to the list if you're sure it's legible. I don't think the frame could be anything besides a Tri Colorado. Please verify that it has a tapered seat tube (larger diameter at BB than at seatpost). Thanks for giving us another one.

CC (yes for early CSI)
 
I have a filet brazed CSI with the serial number: CC63 767. 63x62c-c frame, filets on the front end and toptube seatcluster junction, lugs on top tube and bb. So, early CSI's for sure had CC serial numbers.

Club Special Serial Number
 
I'm looking at a Club Special in really good condition. My question is the serial number #5239. Is that a Serotta serial number? It doesn't have a year or Ben's initials. In addition, the the tops of seat stays don't have an "S" or "Serotta" engraved on them.

That may be the way they designated custom CSIs. Yours sounds like a custom with those dimensions. You might get an idea on age by comparing your paint with descriptions in the catalogs.

What else identifies it as a Club? I'd say the serial number would make it a 1985 as it begins with 5, although others I've seen have had 1 more digit, like: 50239. Clubs were normally engraved, as stated in the 1985 catalog; perhaps it's a Nova.

I have a Legend Ti with the ST carbon stays from about 2006 it seems. The Serial starts with CLS. I don't see LS on the master chart. If it is a 2006, it's interesting to note that the Catalog calls it a Legend ST but the picture of the bike clearly says Legend Ti.

oliver1850 06-16-2013 12:43 PM

Thanks for the info on the Legend ST. I see what you mean about the catalog. Perhaps later STs got an updated model decal. Does yours say Ti or ST?

YoKev 06-20-2013 05:54 AM

The decal just says Legend Ti.

Excuse the kind of poor picture but this is what I have:

It seems only some models got different decals for the rear options. I looked at 2002 -2003 Ottrotts, which had 3 rear triagle options: ST, IT, DKS. Oddly, in 2003 the Concours CS has a CS TT decal, while the Ottrott and Legend STs have the same decals as their Ti stayed counterparts.
