Apologies for the pinkbike links. The original photo's are on an old computer somewhere.

Turner Burner DH. This is what the Kona Misser replica was based on. 4" travel on a DH bike! Possibly the best handling bike I've ever ridden though. This frame was from mid-90's but built here with more modern bits.

Amazing disc brake bodge :shock:

Eventually used some Psylos with a proper mount.

Sadly the frame died after my (now) wife rode it in Morzine/Les Gets (cracked around seat-tube/bb junction). The rear stays lived on when bolted to a Turner XCE front end though :D

There's some pics of my Santa Cruz Super8 in there as well. It was the later version from 2003ish.

No its all genuine carbon and yes I still have it

Its actually mentioned on page 18 of the above thread as well, seems there are just 2 of them, mine and the guy who builds them development bike.

He also made this one as well which he setup to run 29 inch wheels and sub 35lbs - seem to think he hit 32 in the end which is pretty light for a DH bike

and my frame when it was shipped
