<< My Jack Taylor 15 speed touring bicycle was bought second hand about 1965 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It had been well used but NOT abused. It has a lugged frame, the two cable Cycle deraileur system with the bracket brazed to the frame, and what we here called Mafac mountain brakes. The serial number, still very clear on the left rear fork dropout, is 8393. >>
Wow, George, that info screws up our theoretic system!! Have you looked at all the other numbers on the chart?
I wonder what happened here? You are absolutely sure about that number, eh? Based on the way the other serial numbers were working, it "should be" something like in the 5000 series!!! Crazy!
Thanks for sharing that info.
