It's one of those bikes you think "I will never see one live"
But, now I even own one. So the search for input on it starts....

Does anyone here know more about this bike. I do have the brochure an all details on this specific bike.
But how many were made, where were they build, for how long were they built. Is there any later models......

This is an all original 1995 build unit (maybe just the seat has been changed).

Thanks for your input!

Jeroen

At least it won't crack at the head-tube!... Do those rivets along the main black tubes serve any purpose?
