It looks like the bikes built up here in Canada. There is a shop here in Vancouver that has one and I asked about it. The sales person said it was built by a local guy who was also the shop's head mechanic a few years ago. From what I was told the guy didn't build for a long time and stopped building in the early-80s. good luck, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Vancouver, B.C.

PS: if any locals what to check out the frame I saw for sale it's in the little shop on Commercial ave. a couple blocks up from the Cuban breakfast place.
