Only one I ever seen was the one I owned and it was decidedly not flouro, but black with white flecks. Beautifully built but mine was obviously custom made as it did not fit me despite a 21" frame. It had a very short top tube and steep steering angle plus only clearance for 1.75 wide tyres. Strange bike but as I say it oozed quality construction.

This is a company with a history thats interesting, and has seen some quite prolific frame builders, our own Andy Thompson -Zinn, and then someone who would make Chris Chance himself look like a part-timer.

Lee Cooper, schooled in the Dark Arts by none other than Tom Bromich, always in the shadows, having designed and built for more brands, (in house and out) than i can count, and still doing it, my guess would be, some might even be riding one of his and not have a clue that he was the torchman behind it.

Un Sung Heros come to mind.
