Hey guys,

I've had this pic for a while I think I scanned out of a magazine) & I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this particular bike?

I assume it's Avanti....but what year? Specs? Who raced them?

Any photos or links would be ACE!!!!

Cheers

Mick

Anyone shed any light on the Avanti? Would love to know more (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

There is nothing current day or past 10 years pursuing any Points Race or leisure on the Resorts looking like that.

The best I can muster is a fledgling effort to gain acceptance for this variation of frame configuration.

Different yes w/ variable RW suspension, but like I had said.

SoftRide

Outside this I would like to see FLEXX H-bars adapted to MTNB. Reports of a Euro DH rider making way, but nothing public to read for the past year +.

I found out what the frame was...a New Zealand made "Keewee Cromo-eight" (which was badged up as an Avanti).
It had a modified seat (MX style saddle)...although Im unsure of the year it was built.
Thanks the Joe-bag-O-donuts (Gav) for the info! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/good2.gif)
