Jaypkk -- I'm pretty sure that there were some Fierte's that had custom geometry, which would explain why this doesn't match the stock geometry for the Fierte.

Hi All,
Can anyone help me trying to decode " CTI 55 4053 " ?
No decal on the frame ( with a compact geometry) .

Is it a Legend or a Colorado ?
Any idea of the date of manufacturing ?

Thanks in advance.

From what I have seen from other posts, CTI is a Legend ,55 is the frame size and 4053 is the production number. You'd have to look at other folks posts of CTI to try and figure out about what year this was built.

Not exactly, the 761 is the production number. Based on what other folks have posted, yours is mostly likely a '96 or '97. You can check this thread to see the serial numbers and year of production that other people have...

Another Model Code

I have a CXII Ti that I recently acquired. The serial number is very difficult to read through the extraordinarily thick paint, but it appears to start with "C2T".

The second number appears to be "555". It measures around a 56cm, so my guess is that it is actually a 55.5cm.

Just bought an HSG and I have a serial number question

Hello!

I'm new to this site and just found this thread. As it happens I just bought a Serotta HSG. The owner said it was a 2007 model. It has a titanium frame with carbon fiber fork and stays. It is a very nice bike and I'm looking forward to putting a lot of miles on it!

The serial number question I have is as follows. The serial number is "HB 58 xxx". I can verify that it is a 58cm bike, but according to this thread the "HB" means the carbon fiber HSG. Is this a discrepancy? Or is this the way they identified this type of frame? Or am I missing something?

Thanks!
Scott

Most of the codes were received from owners. It's possible someone misidentified a model and therefore provided an inaccurate code. If you're sure of the model of your frame I'd guess the code is correct. You could search the site for similar frames and contact the owners about the model code. Thanks for pointing out the discrepancy.

Doesn't appear that the Fierte Cross has been accounted for... serial starting with FX. Mine is FX 54 001.

Serial #/frame size mismatch?

Hi--I'm wondering about a Serotta serial # that doesn't match its measurements. For Serial #C-CT-51-1653, I've got
Seat tube: c-c 52 (c-t 54.5)
Top tube: Effective c-c 54 (actual c-c 53.3)

I know the first "C" indicates custom, but why/how would a serial number size not match frame measurement?

Thanks a lot for any ideas.

Update: The seller has admitted that they didn't want to make the bike sound "too small," so they added a cm to the ST. The serial # is correct.

Serotta frame steel.

Have a steel lugged vintage frame with brev campagnolo drop outs frame & fork.
Inside top tube rear brake housing.
Repainted at some point with Serotta stickers?
But no serial # I can see.

Check on the underside of the bottom bracket. Often paint can obscure the numbers. Also the serial number was stamped on the steer tube, you'd have to remove the fork to see them.

Meivici SN question

Could someone decode this serial number on a Meivici? MV-54-00029, I am thinking stock 54cm for size, 29th Meivici built. Didn't they start building them in 2006? So what year do you think this one was built?

Thanks

Jack
