1984 MONGOOSE 20" Californian Bike Frame & More #M4K13463 *** Listed as 1987 but found additional information that it may be older than that. Read the following as to why 1984 is now listed as the date. NON GUSSETT FRAMES (POST 1982 FRAMES) To start with, any frame with a serial number starting with "M" was made in Tiawan in the Merida factory. In 1982, BMX Products started to manufacture a new range of non-gussett frame starting with the Pro Class 20" frames. Then next came the first Californian and Expert frames and were USA made, while they were getting setup for Tiawan production, which started in mid 1983. The top of the range frames were still USA made, (ie: Pro class, Rupe, Supergoose). USA made frames continued the standard USA numbering. After the company was sold to Service Cycle in 1986, it seems all remaining frame production was moved to Tiawan. We have been told that when the company was sold the new owners only wanted complete boxed bikes and the rest of the stock of frames were destroyed. So to start the decoding of these serial numbers. First Letter = "M" (Merida factory in Tiawan) First Number = (year of manufacture) Second Letter = (Month of Manufacture) up to feb 1985 Second Letter = (Model) only after march 1985 (only for C=cali or E=Expert) Third Letter = (Month of Manufacture) only after march 1985 Remaining numbers = serial number of production (NB: these numbers started again from 0 every month) **** #M4K13463 = M-Merida , 4= 1984, K= November, Serial number 13463******INFO from VintageMongoose.com
