Had one back in the late 90s. It was my go-to all-mountain bike, and I regretted selling it soon after. There weren't a lot of them made (fabrication contracted out to Foes Racing), and I FINALLY found another one.

Hmmmm, IIRC high pivot swingarm bikes suffer from shock lockout on braking......stay tuned.

The front torque arm mount I mocked up from an pic of my old bike at work last week is pretty close. Some minor tweaking and it will be ready to make.

Nice frame looks mint!
I remember seeing Toby Henderson racing on one of these frames in 96. fast looking bikes must be all the red ;)
The Kuster shocks are good too

Made the adjustable front mount for the torque arm yesterday. ID is 1.250", and the seat tube flares out to 1.260" right above the BB, so I'll have to take out another .010 this morning to get it just right.

I bought my 96 from my buddy who bought it from one of our old DH team mates. I'm not really sure where he got it. A shop in the US I believe. They're the only two I've seen in the flesh.
