    Need info on late 80's/early 90's Litespeed

    I've got a late 80's/early 90's Litespeed MTB frame that I've built up into a SS. I contacted Litespeed regarding the frame, but they have no record from before 1995. If anyone has an early 90's Litespeed frame, I'd be curious to find out what your serial number is to place the manufacturing date of my frame.

    Thanks much - JMJ

    I used some 0000 steel wool to clean up the finish... here's what it looked like before.

    SN is 5147, with "SZ" stamped on the BB shell.

    wish all litespeeds had one. cable stops and welds look familiar though.. decals indicate old vintage. sorry, can't help...
