Hi all.....picked this bike up the other day and not sure of make? The forks are original I think in very distinct paint work. The frame has obviously been repainted quite nicely in a two-tone pearl flip type thingy....looks very nice in the flesh. Complete with Mint Sauce stickers! It came with an odd mix of Exage and XT M730/2 parts.....Its not high-end but is pretty light. Can anyone shed any light please? :D

Diamondback and Claud Butler both had these frames in about 1992. I built one up recently.

My first thought was Claud Butler....the parts on it seem earlier than 92 though?
