I just got bike and is a complete mystery to me.
Titanium frame. 1 inch head tube. Budged top tube. Some of the wields were smoothed. 7 speed LX shifter. XT f/r mech.Race Face LP cable.Stake hubset. Sun Chinook rims.
Can not find a serial number. Looked at the bb shell,head tube, seat tube, stays and drop outs.
The seat post and saddle are modern and junk.

The wields on the top looks top quality. Some of the wields are even smoothed. The wields on the bottom box by the bb on the other hand appears messy.
Budge top tube? I have never it done in titanium.

This is bugging me now :| I think it's American, but I keep thinking of the road bike brakes whenever I look at that rear end... Maybe some sleep will help me remember..

It's bugging me too as I've also seen it recently. Although being in Vancouver maybe I just happened to see the same Craigslist advert? :D

He had it for sale for the last 6 months. I finally decided to take a look. He posted a bad picture and mislisted the size and some of the parts. He was the second owner.
My guess so far is early 90's with a geometry like a Brodie.

No idea what it is... but from the pics looks like the plate under the BB and the one at the top of the chain stays aren't original - might explain the differences in weld quality. Just my thoughts anyway. :)

I thought of that too. However, the bottom addition is not a plate. It is a box. The bottom wields appear messy. The top of the box apepear more clean. It could be a later addition. Some of the wields on the plate are smoothed.
Does anybody have any clues? I still don't.
