Hi Michael,

Where did you get these Pictures? That is the exact brochure I have with the bike.
So I know that part. But it does not say to much about the brand and the numbers produced, etc..

Cheers
Jeroen

Obviously a lot of Manitou parts and know how on that bike (forks, seatpost, complete rear triangle) .... looks like a Manitou spin off

I am convinced that those rivets will become loose over time due to torsional loads.
Interesting design though!

Hi Jeroen, so you bought it! Was thinking of pulling the trigger but the bike is better off in your hands :D
There was a short article about the brand / bike in a German bike magazine, I have it somewhere.
