    Help with a Homegrown (part two)

    Can you guys help me with the year of my frame?
    Will the serial number help me ?

    I'm selling the frame and singulator on E Bay and needed a litle more info. Is this one of the frames built by Yeti?

    Thank you

    I thought the Yeti frames were all the funky bass boat colors... Does the rear dropouts have the Schwinn emblem on them or a Tomato? Is there any graphics on the top tube? The downtube graphics look like 1997 - but I have a 1997 Schwinn catalog that has no dark red frames..... they were all bass boat colors. The Homegrowns started in 1997 - in 1996 they were 9fivespointsomethings..... if I remember correctly. Solid color hardtails were 2000 and newer. Ending in 2002 with anodized frames with Intgrated Headsets.

    So my bet is 2000 - 2001 but the thing throwing me in the graphics.... did you buy the bike new? Could the previous owner re-decal'ed it (and possibly painted it)?

    Hope this helps and I'm no Schwinn authority (but have had 3 Homegrowns over the years).

    The Graphics........

    There is a "USA" in a "Tomato" on the top of the top of the top tube (up by the headset).
    There is also a tomato and the words "homegrown" on the side of the top tube next to the down tube. The color is bright red (it's just a crappy pic). Will the serial number help me in any way?

    Thanks for the help

    rear brake cable housing stop

    Is that a cable stop for the rear brake on the seat stay? If so that would indicate that the frame is from the days of cantilever ( not v ) brakes which would make it an older frame. Maybe 1995 if not a 96??? Nice frame by the way !

    regular homegrown frame

    looks like a regular homegrown not the factory model because the chainstay yoke is not consistant with a factory frame when yeti was making them. I would bet the homegrown sticker does not say "100% American Made" above the homegrown text...another indicator that it is possibly not a factory frame. my wife's SS is a regular homegrown and i have a factory frame laying around also and the factory frame sounds/feels like a coke can when thunked compared to my wife's frame...her's just feels like a regular aluminium frame...very different.

    for what it is worth, my wife got the frame at the velo swap in 2003 for $70 including BB and it has the expected paint chips, stickers and scratches.
