Welcome to C&V. Unfortunately most of us, myself included, don't dabble in BMX bikes. Here's the page for the 1982 version which I believe was the first year. Look at the headbadge and see if you spot a small 4 digit number. The last digit is the year. For instance, "0122" was built on the 12th day of 1982 or 1992. "2316" would be built on the 231st day of 1976 of 1986. This narrows down the year when looking at the catalogs.
Check out these links. They should help. Best of luck.
