Mike, I have a Nagasawa Kirin bike with the serial #8208. Richie Sachs dated it to 1982. Seems the first two numbers are the date. He also looked at pics of the bike which seemed to confirm this assesment. Remember, early ones have regular fork and rear drop out ends and not the "plug" lugs (not sure the correct name is for this style). Best, Eddie Albert Chappaqua, NY, U.S.A.

Just wondering if anyone out there knows if there is some sort of sequen ce to Nagasawa serial numbers. I am trying to date a Nagasawa which may be from the late 70s.

Thanks!
