Re: Robinson question,

Never seen an '89 with no plate.


planetbicycle@yahoo.com

Would love to find my old Dirt Bike.  It was stolen in Pompano Beach, Florida in about 1996.  It's a '92 with the block graphics on a Green frame.  Pitchforks, Slam bars, King Headset, GT (DK-style) stem and GT/Profile cranks.  Superlace hubs.  Would really love to put this back in my collection.

Re: Robinson question,

The decals range from 90-94 from what I know about Robinsons.

Re: Robinson question,

doh!


I'm not going to be able to ship until about Friday this week.....Friday the 13th....oh no!

Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Re: Robinson question,

Maybe because the SST version is a lower end frame that wasn't made in the USA…

Re: Robinson question,

I have this exact year SST.

It was made in the USA. SSTs didnt have the seattube badge.

Mine has the OG stickers including the purple and black 4130 Made in the USA.
Not the later, chainstay "built" in the USA stickers.

If it has the all number serial and the SST stamped on the drop it was USA made.

The foreign made SSTs  had the serial on the BB shell and started with YC.....

I used to have a 96 SST that was the YC serial, not made here.

Re: Robinson question,

By the way, I meant my 'doh!' in the sporting sense.  It was an easy mistake to make as it starts with 089.  Just thought it was funny how it went down.

As with the previous poster, I agree....this is a GT Santa Ana style serial number on that SST.  I don't know too much about Robinson, but as they were made by GT at that time, they seem to follow the same SN style as GT.  So I would have had the impression this is a US made frame as well.

Re: Robinson question,

late month 94 serial numbers are really 95's etc.  96 was the year Robinson went to a thread less stem, thats a 95


Okay, what would Joe do at a time like this? He'd kill everybody and smoke some cigarettes.
