The person I bought it from said they'd emailed Specialized and confirmed it was one of three prototypes built but never went into production , I'll do the same and see what they say.
No firm plans on the rebuild yet , I just sold my FSR elite so will use the cash from that to buy some bits off here,and get it powder coated.

Can't say I've ever seen an fsr with that hole in the frame before and was curious as to whether anyone else had.Thankyou for replying.

the FSR DH had a hole in the frame like that... guessing your frame was a prototype version of that...?

Had one of those myself.
Sweet riding frame!
Never did figure out the purpose of the hole though, guess it made it faster. :shock:
