I didn't spend a lot of time there, but couldn't seem to get the finish options to work. You might ask in general discussion when Serotta started bead blasting logos. I didn't see any examples in the last print catalog I have (2008).

55 LG A0192 is the serial.

Yes, that is a titanium Classique. It appears to be of the final iteration produced with that model name. The American Craftsmen affectation gives it away, as the blasted logos were a mainstay of the late 2000s Classiques and not unique to the year. The A in the serial number serves to identify it as a post-2011 model. I'm not sure what you're referring to as the orientation, but the bottom bracket location of the serial number was a Serotta mainstay for...decades. There was used a real Rube Goldberg-esque contraption, inherited from another enterprise, employed to impression the BB "shells" with the identification numbers in that location.

Thanks Brian. I think the poster was referring to the number itself, which doesn't conform to either the traditional system (ST 56 xxxx) or the one introduced in (I think) 2010 (CL X00959).

The bead blasted logos had to start some time. Do you have an idea when they were first done?
