I thought Funk for only a few seconds, than my head went to something obscure like Ellison, but I really don't have a clue. Could also be a Tw made piece. Who knows?? Tell me, please.

I agree with Kase.

Suzi-Q style top tube but the way the e-stay joins the Down tube looks wrong...Having said that the Suzi-Q looks wrong :lol:

Dunno? :?

Is there a frame No. or any identifying marks? Ozone / Bigfoot / Smokestone prototype perhaps?

This is an old british eagle boss I used to have,

VERY similar in a LOT of ways, just that extended top tube that throws it out :?

Thanks for all your contributions guys!

Retrobikeguy's Boss looks very similar, even the tt canti guides are drilled.

The Britisch Eagle Boss' origins lay in Taiwan right? If so, it seems the bike I posted is just another pick from the huge catalogue of a Tw outsourcing company.
