Can't find anything on these via Inspector Google.

Only reference is a link to here and another Fast Eddie's Frame. Part of the drop outs look similar and the graphics look similar.

Interesting !
Is it yours ? If yes, where did you find it ?

I found nothing about Fast Eddie's. I tried many way with no results.
But my suspension frame should be made by Bill Stevenson (he created the same very small size in 1993 for Alpinestars in 1993…)

No its not mine. It's on ebay from a company called Recyke Y'Bike

I just like browsing at old bikes on ebay and saw it. Gotta be worth a punt for someone at £40.

I think that Fast Eddie's would be a small UK shop which imported some frame and sold them.
I ever seen such an aluminium frame somewhere but with other brand on it…

I have contacted the saler. He knows nothing about that brand

No i think they just get given bikes and then strip them and sell them.

Just who is Fast Eddie? :)

Well people I can tell you a great deal about Fast Eddie bikes because I used to work for the company and build them.

Fast Eddie is my old bosses farther, Charles Edward Fagg. So no high ranking race dude involved.

All FE frames came from China including the Ti, carbon and carbon/kevlar. I used to build these in an small unit in Birtly and then moved down to Whitley Bay Dome. Deep in the cellars was where they were finally built. The upstairs of the dome was Fast Eddies skate park. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B7ZOETPCQAAcmD1.jpg:large

That frame with the Risse shock was not the best idea and as a bike didnt feel good. The steel full suspension frame was only short travel but wasnt too bad.

Good old days and good bikes...
