    What year this Motolite?

    Hi! can u folks in the Titus forum give me a hand? I've been checking out this sweet used Motolite for a family member at a local bike store. The store owner says it's 2008, but from the pictures I've seen in the Titus forum it seems 2007. Anybody can tell me for sure it is 2007 and not 2006 or 2008? Thanks for any help!

    That color is from 2007. That year it was anodized black, silver or that green. Great bike.

    Judging from the decals, head badge, and color scheme, I'd be willing to bet it's a Large 2007 MotoLite II. I'll also be willing to bet it doesn't say "Made in USA" just above the front derailleur clamp, does it?

    Just like mine, only green.

    BikerBob would be the authority on this, though.

    That is a 2007. It is the first year the carbon seat stay was offered.

    Nice color

    My guess is mid-60's.
    I had a 66 Dodge Dart that same color. Three on the tree if you even know what that means.

    Can't remember the year they offered gay pedals, or allowed gay pedal riders the ability to purchas such a fine piece of equipment.

    yur correct - bike's been sitting around the shop previous owner took his pedals and the 'gay ones' are for customer's to try it out in the parking lot. price was a bit much, but the 2007 (the shop insists 2008) should bring it down a bit - thanks again!
