Nick you have the "eye of an eagle".

The bike is totally unchanged from when i collected it, it has'nt been painted, what you are seeing is the remanence of the rest of the Original decal, imprinted onto the frame essentially the remainder of the headbadge long since lost from 1000s of hours of riding and then cleaning i suspect.......... 8)

Approximately 1995 for this frame, built in the Santa Cruz Frame shop.

I could be wrong in thinking this was the only Multi Material Hardtail with the carbon seatstay...? (happy to be corrected on this as I can honestly remember for sure.)
