I just bought this from a co-worker, it was his father's. I would really like to know the history of it, I cannot find a serial number. Can someone help? Anyone seen this bike before? Where are the most common places for a seials number other than the seat tube? Thanks

Is that a Shimano 3-speed hub? If it has a two-letter code stamped on the hub shell, the first letter might be the year with A=1976. Sturmey hubs went out of fashion about then. There was a transitional period when US-made frames could still compete, provided they used Japanese components... Huffy, AMF/Roadmaster, Ross did this. So did Trek for that matter but by '83 they were importing frames too.

based on the statement I gave, which I found on the vintage trek site, that would be about 1981.

Thanks, based on your info, I found a site with the following chart:

Shimano Year Code

A B C D E F G H I J K L M
1976 1977 1978 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988
2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007

N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001

Shimano Month Code

A B C D E F G H I J K L
Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec

According to this, the hub was made in September of 1980.

At least now I have a ballpark of the bikes age, which is probably 1981 like you said.

I think I should have counted on my fingers... if A is 76, E would 80.

I am cleaning out my late fathers garage. He was in to antiques. There are some old bikes in various states, from comlpete to frames with forks. All around the turn of the century. There is a Mead Pathfinder, a Colson Silver Ring,a Rixe, a Wards Hawthorne and several others. Any information or offer would be appreciated.

Sounds like your father had quite the collection. If you post some pictures of your bicycles I am sure someone on here can definitely help get you some more information. You can also post pictures on the CABE (www.thecabe.com) and see if they can help. Are you trying to sell these bikes are just looking to find more out about the collection?

Hello-
Once you get some valuations, feel free to send me some of the details. I am looking for a project over the winter, so would love to purchase one of your bikes. (I honestly have no idea to their worth, and I would be riding the bike at the end of it, just so you know where I stand)
