Posted by Racer in DG Serial Numbers.
trackback

This list was compiled over a couple years by CorvetteJim. With his permission I am reprinting it. Jim will also be providing more info and pictures for the site as well. Thanks Jim its dedicated collectors and enthusiasts like yourself, that help make this such a fun hobby. I will update this from time to time as he or myself adds new serial numbers. If your DG is not on the list please reply with a comment and all info about your bike you know. Model, Color, Year if you know it etc and of course the serial number.

DG serial # list as of March 30, 2015

***Note 1979 and after is in most cases an educated guess. I’m doing as much research as i can and it looks like about Sept 1981 might be the last of the DG.
It’s very difficult to tell were the 79 and 80 break in serial #`s because of so many people installing the wrong head tube sticker because its so hard to find the black/prism sticker.
77,78,and up to Oct 79 have the black/prism head tube sticker. and after Oct 79 and thru 1980 and into the beginning of 1981 has the blue/gold sticker. Late 1981 has the black and gold right side up and up side down logo sticker.

2. Greg Brownstead - April 14, 2014

Hello, My 79 dg frame has a 122 serial # on it. Can you tell me if this is the correct year? Thanks, Greg

Racer - April 14, 2014

That does seem to match the serial number thread. It would be a early first or second batch of 1979.

3. dggreg1970 - April 25, 2014

Hello, My second dg frame that i just bought has a serial #02155 stamped on the bottom bracket. Can anyone tell me if i have a mini or 20” frame? Thanks, Greg

4. Racer - April 27, 2014

I dont think or know if you can tell for sure by serial number.
I dont have frame spec measurements. Maybe someone will submit them.

5. Scott casey - June 29, 2015

Hi I have a chrome racer serial number C 377 445 I live in the UK ! Have you any information on this frame please ?

dggreg1970 - July 15, 2015

Hello your frame was made in March 1977 and it was chrome from UK. it also has the straight D in the gusset and head to sticker is black with gold prism logo. Greg

Scott casey - July 16, 2015

Hi thanks for your help on this ! Is it possible to post pics up ? If so I’ll send a pick when it’s built !
Regards
Scott

dggreg1970 - July 16, 2015

that’s cool, I would like to see a picture of your DG after it is built. Scott send pics to my email at gsb1970@cox.net greg

Hi, I have a DG serial # you might want to add to the registry. It is serial # 1 9 123. I am fairly certain it is an early (Jan) 1979 Racer 2. Pics of original condition show it as red with black / gold stickers, which would be either 1978 or 1979 and the very light weight with American bottom bracket identifies it as a cromo racer 2. I will be happy to provide pics after I finish building it out.

Racer - April 20, 2016

Ok that would be awesome. Have fun with the project. Red isnt the most common color for DGs so should be very interesting build.

7. Ron - May 1, 2017

I raced a 20″DG in the 80’s and still have it.Hopefully you can help identify the year,model.etc.It is chrome with euro bottom.yellow sticker on front-don’t think it’s original though,original owner had a center pull brake-I replaced that. Serial# 9 8 18.This bike is important to me and wondered its value.Any help is appreciated.Thank YOU,your info on this site is GREAT!

Racer - May 2, 2017

Believe that is a September 1978 made frame. Value can be all over the place depending on parts etc. Where did you race it at?

8. Ron - May 8, 2017

I raced in the Evansville IN area(burdette, fun city,Henderson KY, Vincennes IN,just local stuff.Bought it from a Newburgh IN racer(Ididnt get his nameand think he had some team support.Bike has 170mm sugino cranks w/bullseye euro bottom brkt.MCS clamp.Redline V-bar.KKT pedals.Shimano hubs Araya rims,Dia-compe brake and has a black/gold prism DG sticker on the seatpost.Obviously not a mini,what model is this?Top tube is about 16.5 “from front of seatpost to back of headtube.Thanks
