It's a '95 Flying V, made by Ingenuity Sports, who bought Mantis from Richard Cunningham

The builds open at the moment, but will be mostly black parts, been chatting with a guy in the states about Pineapple hubs, so will have them front and rear, and i've got a Manitou stem i'll probably use.

Other than that i'll have to see what becomes available :wink:
