Re: RL 22 serial number missing???

I have never seen an 87 with either

here is another tell tale

the cable guides....if they are solid it is an 86 if they are split in the middle like a Master it is an 87

there are a couple other minor details but they are harder to explain and really unnecessary. If the BB is black, the fork pegs are high, and the cable guides are solid it is an 86 wink

Re: RL 22 serial number missing???

Just to clarify

All 87's have the black bottom bracket with the exception of the black model

those were black BB in 86 then chrome BB for 87 as it flows better with the decals for the black bike

Re: RL 22 serial number missing???

Here are a couple other small details that will help you ID the year on your frame

These are characteristics of an 87 and your frame should be without

the first is a set of Weep holes in the brake bridge

check out the little yellow circles

the other is a set of weep holes in the seat stay where they meet the drop out

Re: RL 22 serial number missing???

Yeah that's why I waited till the end of my list of things to mention ...some 87's have it and some do not but none of the 86's had it so if they are there it's just a reinforcing detail that it is an 87 not an 86 wink
