Bicycle Registration

There is not a standard serial number for bicycles. An ideal system would identify the make, model, the model year, and a unique number. Currently, there is no central database to check bicycle registration. With the Internet, a nationwide bicycle registration system could work. Visit the National Bike Registry website.
