Vintage C4 Luna, I think. This pic is from Ebay. C4 used to make these frames and forx at the beginning of the nineties. Apparently they were incredibly stiff, almost unridable, but nothing to say about the beauty....

I disgust anything Maserati after they changed the 3200GT taillights :wink:

Lee, you forgot the true carbon icons; the Hartmann RAM and the Beasty Bikes MKII :wink:


This is a post Miyata Koga Miyata SkyExpension:

By Fastrax, for the the '96 my. Early true Miyata made SkyExpensions were carbon too, but built with lugs.

Pictured bike has some nice specs btw: Machinetech hubs and Zero Weld stem (not sure whether pictured), Zero zippies & ti QRs, Cook E, XTR of course...

Honestly too me it isn't really desirable. It is no Miyata. Well, only reason why I find it desirable is because of the parts. Saw several for sale over the last few years, but so far never was tempted to pick one up.
