Bought a frame for a new build having trouble finding out maker.

The serial number is Snacb14e01933 located underneath bottom bracket.

Any info would be appreciated

    Without photos, it's impossible to tell. – RoboKaren Jul 17 '17 at 16:37

    Even with photos... still impossible to tell. – CardMechanic Jul 17 '17 at 17:25
  • Is there any data base to search serial numbers – Kratosofnevada Jul 17 '17 at 17:27

    Not for most brands. Unless it's a very high end French or Italian brand, or a more than $2,000 American made brand, there usually isn't info available just by serial #. And from that pic, I'm not seeing any identifying marks that are unique to a brand. – CardMechanic Jul 17 '17 at 17:31

Looks like a lower-end, Department Store-quality BMX bike of indeterminate age and brand. It's probably been repainted, doesn't have a head badge or any stickers, I just don't see any way to identify it at all. I know it's a low end one because of the stamped kickstand mounting plate, any nicer bike wouldn't have that. I would go ahead and build it anyways if you like the frame, and ride it well.

  • It's original paint or extremely well] painted and it is super lightweight I figured wasn't nothing to great but I only paid 5 bucks for it I just enjoy building bikes just finished my first one from a pile of broke bikes and it rides great – Kratosofnevada Jul 17 '17 at 17:41

    @Kratosofnevada All bikes feel lightweight without their wheels. Since you enjoy it, that's all that matters. – Criggie Nov 19 '17 at 18:34

Its a cheap Wlmart or Fred Myer bike. The kickstand mount is flat and welded to the frame poorly. My guess is a low range Huffy with a middle upperclass fork, all painted terribly.

  • I can't see the weld you're talking about. Isn't the kick-stand actually bolted to the plate visible between the chain stays? – David Richerby Nov 19 '17 at 17:01

The serial number format is the Pacific Cycle group of brand names.

Mongoose is the most likely brand of BMX from Pacific Cycle.
