Default Buck shaver project

Hey everyone,
I'm excited to share my newest project with everyone: an "arrest me red" Buck Shaver! I've owned this frame for almost 10 years and its been in storage for some of that time so I'm excited to clean it up and get it riding again. One question, however: I can't determine the year or whether it was made in Ny or Ma. The serial number starts with BS L, which is consistent with the '97 frames but I'm still not sure. Any thoughts or general ideas for me to do this some justice?
Cheers!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if that's a 1" headtube then it's Sommerville.

Migs, 1" could be any time up until 97 so there's three years or so of Saratoga production in there.
