Should we post by Model Year or Manufactured Year???
« on: May 05, 2013, 02:21:03 am »
Simple Stupid Question - But..................

My Windsor Green was Manufactured in 1997 - But I feel it was a Model Year 1998.

What makes sense for clarity??

Thank You

Imho Model year is the standard with vehicles.
Btw - I am pretty sure 97 & 98 were the same color.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

  I would guess a lot of vehicles are mfg. the previous year to sell in the next model year.

With the amount of changes on this bike, color would probably be accurate enough.....
