11c1= could be a 1977

some info from JT

I hope I don’t muddy the water, but I have a few history tidbits regarding the transition year, 1979. I made a pitch to become the Hawaii distributor for DG BMX in early 1979. Ed Smith came to Hawaii to check out my company and attend a race that DG co-sponsored with my company. We had a great turnout of 400+ entries as DG gave away a frame, fork, gear bag and other DG apparel and what seemed like 1,000 stickers. This race on March 18, 1979 was covered by BMX Plus! in their July 1979 issue. In an undated letter to their dealers, Allen Fife, General Manager, DG Performance Bicycles states that they purchased “the bicycle division from DG Performance Specialties last April�� . The point of all this is that the transition from Anaheim to San Diego started in early 1979.

In a letter dated October 10, 1979, Mr. Fife advises all DG BMX dealers that “Effective this date all DG frames and complete bicycles must be registered with DG Performance Bicycles to validate the warranty.��  In my opinion, this implies that the San Diego manufacturing plant may have been up and running in October 1979. If so, it may be possible that some late 1979 frames might have come from San Diego with the blue & gold headtube sticker, whereas frames from old stock may still have been shipping with the older black & gold prism stickers.

Re: DG Registry

hey!

I'm new to all this - I am restoring my DG and will probably finish it up in a few days - I have had it stored at my mother's for the past 30 plus years - My serial number is J1176398.  My mom got it for me from a friend that use to race/ live in Las Vegas.  I don't remember the year, but I do remember that it was originally black when I got it.  Can you tell me anything more about it from the numbers?  I will send pictures when it's pretty again - Thanks!

Re: DG Registry

I am working on a DG restore project and the only SN's I can find are on the bottom bracket and the numbers are 184.  The frame is red with gold lettering and it's a "Racer" with the black / gold prism sticker on the head tube.  Can you tell me the year please?

Re: DG Registry

I just picked up a real survivor DG Serial # DG 116 16.  I has been rechromed but it is in real rough shape. Rewelds, dents and someone started to cut out the gusset.  I still think it's cool. It came with some cool forks.  I think there are Dan Gurney forks in real nice condition. I say this because mine are identical to the ones in the fork reference section.
