Olmo Serial Number Dating Registry

This Olmo Serial Number Dating Registry records Olmos with original dated bike parts or provenance, and sometimes only with decals, in order to attempt correlating an Olmo serial number to a year or year range. Later Olmos with date-able elements are actively added, as well as pre-1978 Olmos. Track/pista and junior bikes are not included.

Not all Olmos have serial numbers. Alphanumeric serial numbers were used before 1970. Numeric serial numbers were used from the late 1970s, and then discontinued. Lower level models may not have serial numbers. Serial numbers are stamped on the seat lug on older bikes, or on the bottom bracket underside on later bikes (sometimes matched by a serial number on the fork steerer tube). A

after the year of an Olmo in this Registry designates uncertainty about its year or range of years. Absence of a question mark means there is some certainty about a bikes year or a range of years, established by parts dating, provenance, etc., or by preceding or following dated bikes.

ATIPO RONDINEdecal may or may not appear on some older Olmo bikes, and refers to theAgrati AM lugs, with rondine meaning swallow. Some older Olmos have the ornateAgrati lugswhich Emilio Bozzi sold as Brianza sportiva lugs; the accompanying Agrati rear dropouts are stamped with a scalloped back. However a few Olmos with Brianza lugs have Rondine decals, so go figure. Olmo produced aVelital brand bicycle.

Dating bikes by bike parts is not an exact science since dated parts could be used into following year(s).

An Olmo with its original Campagnolo parts can be dated from date codes on some of those parts.

Thelock nut on the Campagnolo hub axletypically is stamped with CAM. 60 or some other number denoting the last two digits of the year of manufacture.

Nuovo Record and Super Record rear derailleurs have apatent datethat corresponds to its manufacturing date starting in 1970 (example PAT. 70) and marked PATENT without a date before 1970.

Campagnolo crank arms have a date code starting in 1973, consisting of adiamond (1970s)orcircle (1980s)with a number in the center denoting the last digit of the year of manufacture, and then in 1985-9 withsquare and number in the center: 11 = 1985, 21 = 1986, 31 = 1987, 41 = 1988, 51 = 1989 plus some other examples.

The Campagnolo Gran Sport rear derailleur lost its cable housing adjuster screw around 1960.

The word RECORD was added to Campagnolo hub barrels around 1963.

Campagnolo rear dropouts came with porta catena holes starting in 1976.

Universal Mod 61 centerpull brakes were introduced in 1961.

Weinmann Vainqueur centerpull brakes changed from a single spring to two springs in late 1962.

Note the steel barrel front hub, and it did have open C QRs.

MOT fail on legal number plate

Just received a refusal of an MOT certificate based on the judgement that my number plates are illegal (characters not correctly formed). The plates on the car are the carbon domed effect available from demon plates, who sell them as BS standard road legal plates. I have had them for 6 years and theyve never failed a test. The font is standard, although the characters are raised and in a carbon effect.

The MOT centre informed me that from 27th April 2009 stricter test rules have come into force when assesing number plates, basically of it isnt a standard plate, its illegal. The only changes I can find from this date are that you are now allowed to have your countrys flag to the side of the plate.

I guess the guys at the test centre are edging on the side of caution, just very annoying!! On contacting Demon Plates, their response is that some MOT centres pass, some fail the plates. Best to put on a cheap standard set for the MOT, lol!

Yeah think new rules have come into play where by you have to have your country, website from where you bought the car and some sort of number on as well.

It will be stricter due to the amount of tits that tamper with them, making a U an O and so on.

my mot station passed my car with 3/4 plate on the front and blank (no BSA numbers etc) on the rear

My plates have been made since about 2003. They have been through several MOT tests. There cut down but the correct spacing etc. There is my web site on the bottom. No numbers or anything.we got stopped from making the 3D plates at the Motor World i used to work at years and years ago, from the local police who arrived to check our records were up to scratchI can quite believe the rules for plates are getting stricter. No doubt its all about the all-seeing eye – ANPR.

Its all becoming quite sinister IMO.

Probably is because of the the ANPR.I was told by a copper it was because of the ANPR, when he had a moan about mine cos they are the 3d font ones. Been on there since i brought the car and dont really wanna have to change them but mot is next month so may well have too.

Ive been pulled over because of my plates, police said it was because of ANPR. Cant believe they change the law to make it easier for them to read plates. There software they use must be rubbish. Read in the paper yesterday that police use software to find peadophiles from photos yet for some reason they cant make a camera to read more than 1 stlye of font!!!!How about you all use the proper plates and stop being chavs.

Who said it was to do with speed. lol :lolup:

Tom said:How about you all use the proper plates and stop being chavs.

I was told by a copper it was because of the ANPR. I used to work with one of the largest suppliers of ANPR cameras in the world and asked about this …. answer is, they can read 3D plates & incorrectly spaced plates without any problem whatsoever, they only get grumpy with the dodgy dots that make Us into Os, etc … he was offended when i insinuated there software wasnt up to scratch lol

How about you all use the proper plates and stop being chavs.

Plates do not make you quicker.Click to expand…Agree with you – why dont people just leave the plates alone? Saves a lot of hassle and money.WWhite16valverMay 26, 200918May 26, 200918Roy Munson said:I can quite believe the rules for plates are getting stricter.

For the record the plates where on it when i brought the car, and are totally standard apart from the 3d font and are from halfords not some dodgy buyer off ebay. The whole point is i wanna leave them on cos i dont want to be f$%king around getting new ones made up when there is nothing wrong with these! Its not like if had them half blacked out or spaced to read something else. They are just normal plates that where fine till they arsed around with their rules cos their anpr system is w**k!M///MunsonMay 26, 200921May 26, 200921I quite agree that plates look better standard. In fact I think anything else is tasteless but, the subject seems more to do with tightening of the rules at MOT stations. Itll be because of ANPR, not bad taste.

EDIT: reading fail on sir daves post. Hmmm.NNOT! gary lMay 26, 200922May 26, 200922Its nothing to do with ANPR, its just an easy way for them them to get out of explaining whatever the real reason is.

I changed to German plates with the wolfsburg stickers in the middle (yes im a hardened criminal) although the numbers were the correct height and correctly spaced.

I put these plates on 2 weeks after buying a new car as soon as the paperwork for my private reg came through, a week later i was pulled and told the reason i was, was because my car flagged up saying it was uninsured so either their system was not in synch with the DVLA or it was still showing as my previous car, irrelevant really.

They then looked around the car and pointed at my plates, why do you have german plates, this isnt a german car?? Erm, yes it is officer, its a VW. well they are illegal, im writing you out a fine i told him i had the originals in the boot and would happily change over there and then but he wasnt having it, i asked why they were illegal and he said (he was south african) because our ANPR cant read those bold letters So who (wrongly)flagged you up saying my car was uninsured? yeah, its fine during the day but the backing is non-reflective he sais, yes officer, which is why cars legally have to have a number plate light, by this time he was clutching at straws and getting real arsey, his mate, a thoroughly nice copper was rather embarassed and wanted to let me change them over but Schwarzenegger was on a rampage.

His eventual reason was if i was involved in a hit and run someone might think i am German and not bother reporting it.

Fair dos, i politely asked him as we were on our way if he was aware that while i had parked my car and was removing my year old daughter from her car seat, he came flying round a one way system the wrong way, far in excess of the 10mph speed limit, with no lights or sirens on, and screech to a halt to block me in as if i was a danger to society?

He replied with his immortal words… If i find out you are uninsured, i will hunt you down and not rest untill i find you

He was a grade A pr**k and untill that point in my life held the rozzers with the highest regard, his mate on the other hand could not have been any nicer, i met him down the town a few months later handing out flyers for a local road safety awareness meeting.

Think about it… it just gives the police a legit reason to pull you over because they dont like the look of your lowered suspension or whatever. Apart from which its just chav to have displaced characters or weird fonts.
