if i m not wrong this was a german product, approx '93.
not a very good performance and nasty to adjust because the spring usually was too soft.
however, looking nice ;)

ride on

Yes, these are Bones. The firm was colled Robinson, as far as I remember. There are featured in the 1994 or 1995 bike workshop (German).

Not definitive, but for those of use with a love of wacky cantilevers - a good resource.
