Newbie question: serial number location for Serotta Davis Phinney

Hello all, new to the forum here.

I own a couple of Serotta's and recently picked up a 90's deep purple Davis Phinney model in size 54 (55 top tube I believe).

The paint and paint scheme looks to be all original. However, I can't find the serial number under the bottom bracket whatsoever and the fork has been replaced with a period-correct Time carbon fork.

Does anyone know where the serial number might be located with this model?

Welcome to the forum. I have a TriColorado from the early 1990s that has the serial number on one of the dropouts. Will check exact location.....

Thank for the response. Can’t find the serial # on any rear drop outs nor underneath the bottom bracket. The frame geometry and color scheme are pretty consistent with the model in the 1991 catalog, but interestingly come with #s.

Rides great and great period components.

Cheers,

The Phinney wasn't built for very many years and I believe that they usually got the stock paint job for a given year. Some years there were different color options. So if your bike looks like one shown in the catalog, there's a good chance it's from the same year as the catalog.
