That frame is one of the ones without the gusset on the downtube bash mount, so that makes it 2005. It's done well to last 5 years! It's a common crack, I doubt many others of the 2005 batch have lasted this long.

Im the second owner of it as well, so its done really well :D. I thought it was a 05 somehow, not sure how but i new it. They have gussets on the bashplate sections?

To be fair, this is exactly the reason I'm so put off getting a Deng frame (however nice some are). Ever since '06 it seems all the bashplate downtube mounts are just a simple nub and a weld. It's just not strong. What happened to the big gussets of old? ala.. 2004 Python, 2005/2006 Echo Team, Onza T-Pro, Koxx Levelboss, etc..?

The 08 GU Typhoon mods seemed to suffer from the bash-downtube mount death a lot too.
