I found this advertised as a 'lightweight bmx frame' on ebay.
Because of the 2 sets of bottle cage mounts and the downtube cable guides i decided it had to actually be an MTB frame of some description so i had a punt and won it :D
Rear brake bosses appear to be for a U brake.
Rear mech mount is a helicoil tapped into the huge bmx style rear dropouts.
1" headtube
No idea what the tab on the back of the seattube is for?
Anybody have any idea of an age for it or any info at all?? :D

is it a cruiser class thing ?

I've offered up a U brake and a 26" rear wheel and its looks spot on :D
I'm pretty sure it was made for 26" wheels :D

I'm wondering if it rings a bell with me because of some patent issue with GT relating to the triple triangle design? Sure i remember seeing something somewhere? :roll:
