I've been riding these for a while now and they're impressive. I'm 6' 5" and 260-300# and these bikes can handle the abuse that only a gorilla like me can dish out.
Both of these bikes are only off by 1 serial number- missing the middle for a trio. There were less than 100 of these ever made although Schwinn Homegrown and Ibis Szazbo shared designs and all 3 were made by John Castellano.

Black bike- Team Issue with original ControlTech V-brakes front and rear, original ControlTech seatpost, original XT rear derailleur, original Fox Alps 5r shock, original XT controls, and a mix of the rest. I use this as my road bike.Image
Silver bike- Team Issue with same shock, set up as Single Speed. Paul Word rear hub, XTR rear V- brakes, Truvativ crankset, Thompson seatpost, Minute airshock with Juicy disc on DT N'duro front. Moots stem, Crowbar. Franken-bike all around.[img]http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/v/user_albums/zygote2k/DSC09972.JPG.html/img]

Thought you'd just missed the [/ off the end of the IMG tag, but maybe not :(

When you post, click the "g2Img" rather than "Img" and then just select them from your album.
