Finished cleaning this one up today and thought I'd share with my friends on the other side of the pond.

Ben, glad you liked it. Not suprised you haven't seen one on your side...near as I can tell they didn't make very many. So far, other than my two, I've only seen a picture of a light blue one, and heard that there's a green one out there somewhere...

I felt extremely lucky to get my yellow one from a generous forum memeber, and finding the red one was like winning the lottery...think I may have used up all my vintage luck for a while.

I don't know a great deal about them, what I do know has been gleaned from MTBR. Apparently Dave Tesch primarily built road bikes and swore he would never build an MTB saying he couldn't stand them! He went on to build less than 100.
