In Topic: B-Serie with green race frame

19 October 2014 - 09:25 AM

The green race frame is based on the black race frame. It has an additional wrap of a particular material that makes it almost indestructible for which was its designed purpose.

It is a little bit stiffer and heavier then the black race frame.

The 1988 is actually the copytight year, note the copyright symbol before 1988.

The first patent No. 4,892,272 was filed on October 14, 1988 which officially became a patent on Jan. 9, 1990.

There is a second patent No. 5,120,006 which was filed Jan. 8, 1990 which officially became a patent on Jum. 9, 1992

If I recall correctly there were some later patents.

First, welcome to the forum!


I wrote a history a few years back that will answer most of your question at: http://johnnmitchell...tory/index.html

The 1988 you see on the tab is the copyright date not the year it was made. Note the Copyright(c in a circle) symbol before 1988.

By following the information I wrote on the REV I you will find out right away, that it was made between 1989 and and 1995. You might be able to pin point closer to the real year by the changes made during the time that model was manufactured. If it was made in 1988 the logo on the front would say NeoOmega not Revolution.

You will also find a thread on this forum dedicate to the REV I with pictures.
