    Look at the serial number. The first digit is the year. It will be a 4, 5, or 6 for 1994, 1995, or 1996.

    would that be on the headtube? cause if it is then its gone, my dad egged the headtube out and had it replaced

    Also, it's pre-1997. The D-Fusion tubing was started in that year - which is a ovalized down tube where it joins the head tube. Yours appears to be round, so it's earlier.

    I think that it's on the bottom of the bottom bracket shell. If you don't see it there, I'll look to see where it is on my Breezer.

    If that bike's serial number is in the same place as on mine it will be on the bottom of the bottom bracket shell.



    Here's my 2000 Breezer Lightning, which I built up using a $150 frame I bought off Craigslist. Since taking this picture I've gotten it down to 21 1/2 pounds, and there are lots of changes that could be made to get it lighter than that.

    Unlikely it was stamped on the headtube. Maybe a 'made in Taiwan' decal is what he's thinking of?

    Are you successfully running 1x(8,9) without a chain guide?

    On this bike I'm running Dura-Ace 7700 cranks with a 39-tooth Ritchey chainring, an NOS Dura-Ace 118mm bottom bracket, a Dura-Ace 7701 chain, and an American Classic 12-25 nine-speed aluminum cassette. So far the chain has stayed in place.
