but I remember it had an motocross style seat built into the frame and ?20 inch? wheels... would love to see that picture again 8) looked nuts.

Anybody remember it?

Thats 24 in wheels mate.

The one I mean was almost exactly the same as the xlite proto, Im certain, but its sides were solid rather than with cut outs, and it had an mx banana seat set into the frame itself.
