Pretty sure it's a Jamis Dakar Team......the forks look like one of the X-Lite prototype suspension forks that were touted around at the time (pre-Wompa).

These puppies were ace, just missed one on Ebay, went for £143, they have only just started coming into the UK again, having had no importer for a while. They were very popular in dual events, being very successful.

What's with the stem, is that a standard one and do you have closeups?
