We are selling our Rans Stratus (silver with blue and yellow decal) and Rans Tailwind (blue with white decal) to purchase trikes ... it's an aging thing ;-)

We understand that the colors change from year to year so was hoping someone could identify the year of our Rans. I've attached pictures of each on this email. We have been Rans riders for years along with my brother (Stratus XP) and sister (Stratus). My brother, at 60 years old, rode his Stratus across the country from San Diego to Savannah GA and BACK! He couldn't have done that on any other bike!. We LOVE the Rans product!!!

I've tried to upload pics but guess I'm doing something wrong. Here's the links where we're selling them:

Look at the serial number. The letter code is the model. First four digits after that are the month and year of manufacture.

Where is the serial number located on the frame? I'm guessing (the bike and I are a few thousand miles apart at the time of this post) that it's on the frame at bottom of the stoker crankset?

Look on the bottom of the bottom bracket. If not there check the left dropout.
