    The Barbarian is a Canadian model. The serial number is probably for a Taiwan manufactured frame, not Kawamura or Giant. Don't try to use the TMar serial number decoding for 1990s Nishikis.

    Thanks for clearing up the serial number letters of the Ultimate.

    The Maxima may have had a different format for the serial number. It may be just three digits.
