This thing is clean beyond belief makes my 83 eco pista look like a hood rat. Any idea on how to identify the year on these frames?

Naw, yours still looks tight. I have a serial number around the seat collar of mine. It's faint, but it's there. Mine starts with a 2, so I know it's an 82.

I've admired this bike since I first saw it on Velospace. Beautiful and understated.

HEY! THAT'S MY BIKE! just kiddind, but it really does look a lot like the one I owned back in Brooklyn in 1983. They're awesome bikes. It was my first fixed gear. I would ride it from Babylon, NY to Brooklyn every Friday to work as a waiter and then back to LI on Monday. All with a tuxedo suit over my arm.
You really bring back memories. Thx.

26.8. Standard for the time period, I believe.

do you know if it's possible to get replacement decals? I picked up an 82/83 pista today but it doesn't have the decals. I've checked eBay and I only see ones that are similar, not exactly the same.
