    trek serial # database?

    i got a 520 and i'm wondering what model year it is. it's a double-butted cromoly frame, but it's in rainforest green.

    i got a serial number of BS 6102 from the bottom bracket. is there some sort of database where i can find the year my bike was made?

    520 vintage

    My Trek 520 is rainforest green also and it is a 2004. That is the only year I know of that Trek manufactured 520's that color. As of a few years prior it was slate grey. If it is new enough to have V-brakes I'd say it's safe to say it's relitively new, this is a rare feature on road bikes and wasn't common technology until the late 90's.

    serial number BS 6102...
    I'm not sure that the serial number system stated on this site applies, the second letter (S), would not apply to a month of the year.

    I hope this helps you.
