Default Melex 212 What year is it?

I just bought a Melex cart, and would like to know what year it is. on the ID plate it says it is a 212 and has a serial number. Is there a way to tell the year from the serial number?

IF you google melex you can find a link to their facility in Poland and some contact info...they told me my serial number was no good? I check it like 5 times? But you can try. Good Luck

As per the website indicated by walnut:
Quote:
The model 412 was the first Melex cart with a plastic body. These were introduced in 1985 and the early ones had just plastic rear fenders and dash. The model 412 was the first to use the US made Dana differential and the GE electric motor. The all plastic model 512E came out in 1992. The "E" being for electric. In November of 2000 the US assets of the Melex Corporation were purchased by one of the Melex U.S. distributors, Nagy Golf & Turf of Mesa, Arizona.
If it's for insurance purposes you can give them any year you like between 85 and 92. If you can't find out, how will they? If the cost goes up by the year, it's an 85 if it's bragging rights it's a 92.
The official Melex website in english is here: http://www.melex.pl/en,index.html email address is trade@melex.com.pl
Melex is still manufactured and has worldwide distribution just not in North America.
