I said Topanga in the other thread, but with the additional pics, I'm now convinced it's a Sorrento.

But my 93 Topanga had pretty much the same paintjob as in the OP, and I've had a Sorrento, with similar, but different coloured paintjob. I am 100% sure it's a DiamondBack. My Emmelles BITD were nothing like this

The frame tubing does not look right for a diamond back a bit to fat.

I know what you're saying, but I still think it's a DB

Looks like a diamondback and spec at the time was pretty much identical to a 1990 MF and I don't recall Emelle spec like this? Think diamondback did this paintjob on a few in their range.

I had an Emmelle with 100GS, and one with 200GS, but the paint was not splatter like that. (Cougar and Cortina)
