I guess this one could be the same one, although original fork on this one was replaced.
Stem on this one is shorter, too.
Looks like it was ridden, also, whereas the one for sale looks NOS...
...or a repaint...
....or is it "almost NOS"? :lol:

EDIT: I just realized that third one is smaller, so that makes at least 3 that were made.

Sure, I'll admit it's nice, and I'll probably go for it, but someone's either been mislead, or is it possible that they're a chronic and habitual.....um.....oh, what's the word I'm looking for?

Is this the same Head that made tennis and squash stuff? I remember almost everyone at my school had a Head bag or something in the early 1990's :lol:

Another bike with the Head logo slapped on it?
I'm sure I've seen similar bikes to this before, I always assumed they were Argos /supermarket BSO 's

Yeah, thats the one! The parents are still using my old Head rucksack to this day, 30 years on :)

As mister Saetan implies, the Yeti made models are also out there. The company operated out of Colorado in the early 90's, hence the tie in I guess? You might recognise these...

....well it certainly isn't the only non-Yeti one ever made. There's one hanging in my friend's garage in Switzerland....yellow and silver
