I don't think I've ever seen one of these for sale in the UK. Potential bargain alert.

Are you able Al to clarify the year of these bikes?

My 1994 Catalogue doesn't feature the Humuhumu, although the Decals of the 1994 for sale on Gumtree seem correct for that year. Was it only available in the U.S?

This I believe is a 1995, with the Italic "Cruiser" Decal:

While these two in alternative colours that differ from the one for sale, do seem to have 1994 Decals - although the two years are very similar:

I'm none the wiser. I'm guessing it's an import regardless since they were a pretty exclusive / unusual bike to order back in the day. So my logic says it's a North American variation or early prototype/show bike. But it's my logic which is often wonky :lol:

That'd be cool but can you ask for him to put it in the Retro MTB Chat section in a post of it's own. That way we can follow the progress of his work on the bike, if that's what he's doing. I've been wanting one of these for a while, to mess about with and own for a short time then inevitably pass it onto someone else.
