    how to date a brompton, cant find serial/frame number list.

    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.

    cheers

    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?

    serial numbers:

    0001000001
    =
    2000
    January
    first (fictional) bike with serialnumber Framenumber ±160000

    0802088888
    2008
    february
    the 88888st bike prduced since january 2000, Framnumber ±250000

    Simon

    and
    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.
