    while sanding down my BO bike I found this bottom bracket serial number.

    can someone give me a year on this?

    thanks in advance.

    It could either be from 1955 or 1936. I'd guess the earlier date, but to be sure I'd have to see the whole bike.

    thanks for your input. I appreciate it.

    I bought it as a frame, with crank and head badge. I'm guessing since it has a dogleg crank and skip tooth it's a '36...

    neat. This is my oldest frame yet. I had a 1938 Roadmaster at one time.

    thanks for that link Nick.
