On chain stays i can read "swiss customize" and on top tube "race o
lake". But it is scratched paint on top tube and do not see on the
pictures so well. I think this frame is older model 2007-2010.

I'm guessing its a European company, since it has FSR and doesn't look like any of the brands that come to the US licensed by specialized. Perhaps a Devinci or Norco???

Trek cant be because chain stays are not straight. (like trek... they are like kona king but i am not sure about kona i have sent email to kona company about this frame)

Is it possible to finde manufacture by serial number?

And i think that frame is from switzerland. But i cant find anything.

My guesses would be KHS or BMC. It's got an integrated headset so it can't be that old, and it's got a hurft link so it it's likely european. The radium shock puts it about 2005 or 2006, I think. The linkage doesn't look like anything KHS though.

Looks like an old Price one. At least, that what Google told me after entering "swiss customized"... That's what they put on the seatstays.
After checking Price's site, this mystery frame certainly looks like a Price to me. The FSR style suspension and the asymmetric chainstays seem like dead give aways.

The seatstay says "(s)wiss customize" so i guess it's some bland Euro/taiwanese catalog bike.
