If you pm me your email Ill send you pics. I’ve got a 1990/1/2 (can’t remember year) TuffTrax in the blue with white decals as per catalogue. However... the more I examined the bike in the catalogue the more I realised it wasn’t quite right. Slowly feature by feature I realised that what I have is in fact not a TuffTrax but a Traverse, painted and sold as a TuffTrax! I know all sorts of anomaly’s exist, but it was quite exciting figuring it out. So for a wolf in sheeps clothing Ive got just the thing.

Thanks Tangent, but it's a bummer that I don't have all the parts I'd need to build it. I'm looking for an original spec-ish Trekker and only have 1/2 of what I'd need. Great history though and I love the pictures of you and the bike!
