strange, it looks like a Mr O swing arm on a UFO front end, very strange.

A little overpriced you could pick up a 222 or evena 223 for that sort of money.

Its the same swingarm as Mr O's

But the shock is far too long , lifting the bb right up!

I think its a Mr Xc :?

I don't think so, the Mr XC has a triangulated front frame like a Patriot.

Its a real oddity but as you say its over shocked

Keitht, I am not sure that its a Mr White. Unless they fundamentally altered the frame design at some stage, could it be a prototype?

heres a Mr White from the 99 catalogue
Image

heres my old Mr O which Enid now has As you can see its the later version with added cross member, the earlier version didnt have it. Note the down tube, its dead straight no kink where the seatmast is welded on.For all intents and purposes the Mr White is the same as the MR O. All the Mr White pics I have seen look the same as the MR O barring the top tube.
Image

The Mystery Mr O as seen on ebay bike
Image

Note the kink in the down tube where the seatmast joins
Image

And finally the UFO

Image
(Yours I believe Keith?)

Same kink in the down tube as the ebay Mr O
Image

The difference with the UFO and the ebay bike is obviously its a SPP swing arm with the pivot mounted above the BB and the UFO is a URT

Maybe the plaque on the toptube near the seat post actually carries some gravity to its origins then?

The swinarm pivot is in a totally different position too :?

Interesting 8)
