Do you know how to interpret the serial numbers stamped on under the bottom brackets on Ricardos?
So far we've got: L1T8745, L6A1761 & L7Z2184
Hi, my Ricardo "Le Tour" (circa 1986?) is L5X4437.
It has 27" rims, Tange 900 tubing and Sugino cranks.
I've owned it from new and it's been a fantastic workhorse, getting me to school in Narrogin, then fitted with Wilderness Equipment panniers when I moved to Perth for Uni.
It's painted a nice deep metalic gold but is now ready for a restoration job and new stickers (after all it's years of loyal service it deserves it!).
I haven't ever seen another "Le Tour" so would be interested to know if there are any others out there.
Great to find the "Society".
