Additional Notes

Rare non-gusset 1983 Cook Bros Racing
After a lot of digging, I was able to determine that my bike is a rare non-gusset 83 Cook Bros.

This bike has a high 2800 serial #: 28x x (the last number is stamped approx. one blank space removed from the first three) and the top tube measures 18.5" (measuring from center of head tube to center of seat post). The guy I bought it from called the OG owner's dad, who had sold him what he was told were an 1981 and a 1983 and confirmed that "he bought all Cooks parts directly from them."

A Cook Bros. aficionado I contacted stated the following:
"Scott, I've seen the serial number with the space a few times....I've only come across 2 others very similar to yours, one nos, non plated, bigger tubing, 19.5 top tube, no serial #......the other chrome, reg tubing?, 19.5 top tube and a serial # in the 2800's also....those style frames I believe are the last Gary Cook (owner) style frames made before selling company...which, if Im correct, would be late 83.........hope this helps...."
