    Paramount serial number question

    I bought this frame a few months ago but just got around to trying to decipher the serial number.
    As stamped it is- 635E WE 87___
    So I know that it is 63cm or 63.5cm, made in May 1987. I'm not sure what the other E and W stand for.

    "E" is the length of the fork steerer tube ("A" was the shortest for the smallest frames with shortest head tubes; "E" was the longest for the biggest frames and longest head tubes).

    "W" means the frame and fork were made at the PDG facility in Waterford, Wisconsin.
