Nice scan Pierre, from my very basic french I make out that the rear suspension is elastomer. I wonder if any T-44's have survived, i'd like one just for the novelty.

I think, the bike shown was only one of the first protoptyp, with a strange 2 parts stem :wink:
The idea was to change the shocks for elastomer or hydraulic as you want :D

i am proud owner of my alpinestars rsa740 mtb, full suspension downhill, in blue silver finish. good condition, stone chips cable rub. but keeping the transfers as safe from crathing, using it every day here with me in the mountains of Sinai Egypt. fitted with hydraulic disk shimanoe and extra long syncross seat post and handle bars for a higher fit. but otherwise mostly original parts ie wheels stem crank forks saddle. i love the ride and the gleam, i used to have the cro-mega years ago, but now wont let this go. i am possible one of few who have this model, in this condition. please any any info on this model?? i think poss around 1997-1999 ire. I like to know, as i cannot find it.

The full suspension one I've seen before somewhere. It's very similar to a 2002 Specialized FSR XC 120

Although the rear pivot is in the wrong place for a Specialized.

EDIT: This one does appear to use Specialized's chainstay pivot:
