Thank you, Oliver!

Yeah. It's probably a 1in. The dropouts do look smaller. Darn was hoping for 1 1/8in.

The paint is not original.

Any help much welcome.

thanks.
SP in the position of the model designation = prototype.

I don't see, in the photos you've presented, anything out of the ordinary with the frame. Sometimes, in my experience, this designation was used simply before a serial number designation was assigned to a model.

That paint looks to me to not only be not the original, but not performed at the factory, not even as a custom scheme, due to the decals. The TiMax frame in the 2006 catalog was painted at the factory. The bike you have may simply have a finish that was inspired by that catalog photo, or indeed be the catalog bike with a non-factory refinish job.

Question Decoding CCI frame model

My Serotta's SN is CCI 57 006 on what I believe to be a circa 2003 Legend Ti with carbon st seat stays. Tubes are straight, not Colorado. Anybody have any thoughts? Bought it on Ebay three years "refurbished" with new incomplete decals, trying to make period correct.
Thanks

2009 Serotta Legend

I've skimmed the thread, but didn't see this designation for a Legend. I'm told by the seller, which was a shop that it was a 2009. It does have a "custom" sticker on it, but here is the reply to my query.

The frame is not custom. Serotta was doing a program that they called custom but it was NOT custom Geometry. There is no way I would order custom geometry for a stock or non sold bike.

They were also trying to get me any of the original paperwork but never came through.

Doesn't appear to be a custom. The serial doesn't start with a C. Make some measurements and see how they hold up to the stock 58cm geo.

I’m intrigued by the “003” stamping.

The 2009 models known as “ready custom” were the HSG and Fierte with all their permutations. Never saw a mention of the Legend being involved in any custom program (other than the regular Serotta Fit customs) but your serial number seems to confirm the start of a new model’s production sequence. Could we get a pic of the “custom” sticker?
