I thought I would post up a photo of this 20" Parkpre that I recently picked up for parts.

There is not much on the internet with respect to the 1990 Sledgehammer. It has the faux
fillet brazing and is constructed from Prestige tubing. Made in Taiwan and actually a much nicer frame than I expected. I will try to remove all the black spray paint from it to visually access some of that nice original paint.

Anyone know anything about these frames ? Any info appreciated.

Thanks ! It looks like you're well stocked on Parkpre's.
I have only seen one other in these parts.

Here's a few more photos:

Very nice! My catalyst has a similar paint scheme, to restore some of the paint I filled the chipped paint in with additional splatters. Found a similar auto touch-up paint that did the job.
