hi, title says it all really, I've googled and searched and come up with nothing.
Does anyone know where there's a list to work out when my brompton M6L was made, there must be a site out there but google doesn't seem to know where.

Why not give Brompton an email?
There is also some info about this on the Yahoo Brompton forum. It was a topic some time ago.

Maybe this might be of any help?
first (fictional) bike with serialnumber Framenumber ±160000
the 88888st bike prduced since january 2000, Framnumber ±250000
With Simon's advice that the first 4 digits of the serial number are
year/month (i.e. 0802 = Feb '08), your comments complete the story,
with identification of manufacture date using the serial number
possible from Nov 2000.

The last time I dated a Brompton, it was all about the fold! Never again! She did have a nice rack, though.
(thank you, I'll be here all week. Try the veal)
