I think it is the same. I remember mine had the American flag sticker on the seat tube as well. For the record they're called "Viper F40", they were advertised in the MBUK magazines of the era about 1997 - 2005?. Very light and responsive, awesome for the £180 price tag. My size 18" came in at 1.6kg on my digital scales. At the moment I can't put it together because I need a new dropout, which is becoming a headache to find.
This is how I had it in 2004/2005 - the last time I built it up before putting the frame into storage:
Came in at a ballpark 25lbs with the heavy-ish (2kg) bombers.
