I went to one of my local bikeshops today where the owner showed me a very exotic steel mtb with a double downtube, the brazing on the frame was very well done and it came with the triangular stem that came on early stumpjumpers. I should of taken a picture, I will get a pic at a later date.

would anyone have an idea what it is? I have definitely seen one before but cannot remember what it is.

Evans and BoE? Evans looks too small for me but I'm loving the crazy angles and wheel sizes of the Beast!
