    Age of this bullit?

    I am considering buying a Bullit, but am unsure of the year. I am guessing it is 2002-3. Does anyone have a better clue based on the decal?

    Thanks!

    Well, it has a decal like my '03, but based on the bundle of cables/hose under the top tube I'm gonna say it's a '99-'02. The only thing under the top tube of '03-'05 models is the front derailleur cable. Is this a contest or something? Why not show us the rest of the bike? That bundle of control cables/hose points to a pre'03 model for my money. Yeah, SC doesn't adhere to strict year models like everyone else, blah, blah...but basically you have '99-'02 models without a headtube brace plate, and you have '03-'05 models with the headtube brace plate. There are other issues between models, but the big break is between '02 and '03.

    Is there a gussett at the headtube/top tube junction? If no, then pre-2002. What shock?

    That's a pre '03 for sure. Yeah, the gusset plated Bullits became available in about the last 3 months of '02, but that's what everybody else was calling an '03 at that point, so pick your poison. How about we call that a 1st generation Bullit? The first one being '99-'02, the second being '03-'05, and the third is the current model of about '07-'09.

    I'd guess 2001 or 2002 because the decal isn't in italics like the older ones. There's also a crank clearance dimple in the swingarm that wasn't there until 2000.
