    Check the Classic & Vintage forum and supply the make and model of the frame.

    Welcome.

    I have no idea where to go with this. I usually just look online for older sales brochures and pinpoint the approximate year from that.

    Also the components on a bike will be a good tipoff as to it's age. Of course if someone decided to swap out all the components, that could be less than perfectly accurate.
