Pogliaghi Registry
Bicycle Frame serial numbers

to establish approximate manufacture date.

Estimated serial number dating...
(Note: early production was low, 300-500 frames a year
until the early 1970s, according to *The Custom Bicycle*)

1950-1960:  #1 through #2500
(+/- 500)
1960-1970:  #2500 through #8000
(+/- 1000)
1970-1983:  #8000 through #14000
(+/- 1000)

(There is conflicting evidence over the quantity of production in the mid/late 70s.
Some data suggests about 800 frames a year at that time. Other data suggests many
fewer frames per year. We need more confirmed data to know exactly when the frames
9000-14000 were made. Was it 1970-1978? Or was it 1974-1982 or so? At this point the data conflicts.)

Placed in ascending serial number order.                  Updated 4.5.2015

Serial number


Phil Grizic 58 cm track, part restored - original decals, blue/ purple 810 Unsure of the year - looking at the serial numbers it would suggest early 1950's ?
Thomas Minder Original condition & equipped with a Campagnolo Cambio Corsa gear 129347 Does not agree with other numberings!
John Morrison

58cm c-t road. Faema Team colors of red and white, restored by Brian Baylis as original . Original foil graphics retained. Diamond cutouts. Brazed-on cable-stops for front derailleur (a 60s feature that makes the frame impractical for use with the Record derailleur that *has* a cable stop already.)

3783 Probable date of manufacture
determined by examination of similar frames of the period.
Could be as late as 1967, or as early as 1960...
