Threaded headset and quill stem - I'm going to guess late nineties, no newer than maybe 2001. Is it nine speed?

Giant OCR's still had a quill stem till 2003, so yeh, my guess on this one is 2001-2003

I also have an Avanti Sprint. I would like to know the manufature year. The BB has the code D66K04389. Any gurus know if, how or where to decipher that code?

Spanks in advance ;)
