I recently bought about half of a 2003 Avalanche 1.0 Disc (The same Blue/Silver frame here) including the frame, fork, and a couple other components. I fixed it up for my girlfriend to use. About 2 weeks after I finished fixing it, it was stolen out of my garage. I hadn't thought to record the serial #. Now I am learning the hard way that there is almost nothing you can do about a stolen bike without the serial number.
As blind luck would have it , I took a couple of pictures during repair and one of them shows only the **LAST 4 DIGITS** of the serial number, eg 1234.
A little reading has told me that these may be the only "unique" digits in the serial. Which is to say, a serial number organized as follows:
Where the [XX####] describes the manufacture location, build location, date of manufacture, etc... and the last 4 digits are the unique identifier.
- Can anyone help me with trying to reconstruct the whole number, or at least get an idea of what it may look like?
- Anyone have more insight about the serial numbers?
- People willing to share all EXCEPT the last 4 digits on similar bikes?
I badly need as much of this number as possible to file a proper police report and inform pawn shop owners, etc. what to look out for!
Any help is greatly appreciated.
FYI: I read this already: http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/info/122/
Also, I contacted GT, and they said due to being new owners, they do not have old records that might help.
