Mystery Russian Stels Navigator 550 or Mongoose

Hey gang,

I have a frame I'd like to get working. Probably just a low-end bike, but I cannot find any identifying markings, and the closest bike I can find to it is a Russian Stels Navigator 550.

What I have is this:

I anticipate it is a basic store Mongoose, but I cannot find any US bike that looks close to this.

Can you identify the make and model?

Thanks

It's probably an Asian, contract manufactured frame, possibly even a private label brand for a chain. The serial number may allow us to identify the manufacturer and year, which may lead us to a possible brand. However, I suspect it is a standard frame design that carried many brand names.

Thanks fellas,

But I'm going to have to kick it up a notch. I've decided to ask the Rooskies if this one was one of theirs. That should be interesting. I'll keep you guys posted as to their response.

Thanks T-Mar.

Is there a webpage or webpages, that I can plug a serial number into and get a manufacturer, or better yet, manufacturer, make and model? Almost sounds like hunting down mystery motherboards and their BIOS init strings.
