    Help identifying year/any info on this old Norco Beretta

    Hey guys I picked this bike up at a garage sale for free. Bought a new rear rim and tires all around - it rides amazingly! Everything else is as I got it. Here are some pics, and some info I picked up off the bike. I'm looking for any info at all on the bike. I think it's a Frankenstein bike, but I may be mistaken.

    The only stamped number I could find on the frame (it was underneath the brake cable and shifter cable guide on the bottom tube where the crankset goes through): SC802241
    Shimano Tourney Brakes front and rear
    Changistar Brake Levers
    Sr Roots right cable shifter
    Shimano left cable shifter
    Thunder Bird 2 front derailleur
    Eagle 2 rear derailleur

    Any help would be awesome!

    Have a look through How Old Is My Bike?, paying closest attention to Component Numbers, and you should come pretty darn close to nailing the vintage.

    In the picture below, it is the WE that will help identify vintage...


    Hope this is a help.

    Back side of the front derailleur. Look through the page on components I suggested. There are date codes on many components and all, considered together, will point to the vintage of the bicycle.
