Certainly looks like the right gusseting (!) for a Bontrager, and the dropouts look right too...

The highest bidder is a keen Bontrager and Klein collector from the MTBR forum (think he worked for Klein) so I'm guessing this is genuine :D

I think its dodgy, but could be wrong. Looks like a higher end Trek(970?) resprayed.

Like a ghost from across the pond . . .Hi all. I just recently became a member. I'll stop lurking now.

It is genuine only in the fact that it was made in Santa Cruz. The fork is throwing the geometry off. Would be better if it were Bonty crowned Rock Shox . . . the color is . . . different . . . .um, it's 1 1/8 headtube . . be better if it were 1" . . . rear stays are OK as many early brazed Bonties were not monostay. For this time period that this one was built? Strange. I would call it a curio, more than anything else.

Yeah, a bontrek, or a trekager, or . . . tretrager . . .
