    Late 1980s post 1985. On the head badge the will a tiny 4 digit number stamped into it. You might have to look hard for it. The first 3 numbers are the day of the year and the last number would be the year. 3456 would be the 345 day of 1986. Roger

    First Tempo I ever saw in a shop was early in 1984. Shimano Light Action derailers. I believe that was the first year for the model.

    Point, That's what I was looking for! I've got a tempo that was made the second week of 84 so was wondering when they came out.

    I know Panasonic made them & thought their serial numbers on the head tube gave some info. too, but not sure.

    Thanks for the help guys!
