Nice! I have a couple of Scapin frames I haven't managed to collect all the parts to build yet.

So the TR-X was rigid in 1992? I have one I think might be from 1995 and by then they were suspension adjusted.

I'm enjoying the extra information already. It's not easy to find out much in this country. I will try to take a picture of my TR-X and ZR-X frames so you can confirm the year for me. I do have a few catalogue scans with details of the frames in them.
