    Old Roads has the Columbia, Huffy, Raleigh and Schwinn serial numbers. Classics Rendezevous has info or links for serial numbers on several makes including Cinelli, Mondia and Peugeot. Dedicated sites such as Retro Raleighs and Vintage Trek have the information for their respective brands.

    If you have a mid-to-high-end Peugeot, take a look at the PX-10 site in ClassicRendezvous' "French quarter."

    As I found the 'site for Dave Moulton last night, showing the guide in how to track the serial number vs. the total amount made in production. A total of 216 rcorded frames were manufactured. As I interepreted the serial# with the dates of Prod. on the 'site: I found to have the 2ND Frame that Moulton built.

    and the site is?

    i have a Raleigh with a serial number 0693. i think its mid 70's but would like to know for sure. its a Raleigh "Folder" and does anybody know for motobecane?

    somebody should make just a site and compile just serial numbers for bikes. that would be sweet.

    Help, someone-anyone,
    I need information for vintage bike serial numbers. I have an Olmo and several pre 60's Hetchins that I would like to date. The Olmo is similar to some older Fiorelli Coppi's and a 40's Bartali. Is it that Schwinn and Raleigh were stamped out using manufacturing guidelines and the less common bikes were made in workshops behind peoples houses, which meant less identifying frames, like the early Colnago's and Carlton's. I would be more than happy to help research this, but where to start is beyond me. We better get started in digging these numbers and their origins out, because more and more of these old time builders are getting older and these numbers and what they mean are slipping deeper into the woodwork. If I could be of any help, someone please help guide me and I will help. Thank you. Email: xcs_63@yahoo.com.
    Best Regards,
    John Proch
