Lucky to get it, roc6839 gets all the credit for finding it and the parts resto. I took it to the frame building open house to confirm year and try to find the painter.

A thanks to the guys, I broke #200 in the Philippines a long time ago. This is #256, the paint rub on the fork I'm not going to fix. I'm going to preserve this paint job rather than a redo.
This frame has a tab for a Hite Rite, first time I've seen that on a Romax. I will post pics of the others. I should have asked Paul how many bikes had that, he did say the pre gator, only 100 were made.

I've been looking for this bike for a long time. Vancouver has some great people. One was kind enough to sell it to me.

I will add more photos of the other brodie (#236) and the dead frame #200.

I may repair the dead one in September and bring it back to life, that bike has a first generation Gator blade. Have a look at my Gallery for better pics.
