No , i was just wandering the same .

Especially, why would there be a Fox shock on a Manitou frame except if the owner changed it ?

If it is , real bargain .

i can't make my mind up either.

rear drop outs hint at manitou, but the welding around the seat tube and top tube brace looks poor.

if it is what it's claimed to be it will be snapped up.

thats about as manitou as my volkwagon testarossa ;)

looks like an iron horse..

heres a quick close up pic of a mani DH http://www.reset-racing.de/reset/reset18.htm
essentially the same as a normal mani XC FS, higher BB, longer travel, supposedly more beefed up. coil over shock. DCD copy chain device as well I seem to remember :)

Actually reminds me of the old full sus frames Super Cycles used to sell - I think they had names like the Bouncer and the Don?
