  1. The true STR-1, with the under the bottom bracket tubing, that "cradles" the bottom bracket never was a production bike. A number of team riders probably rode one for testing and feedback purposes. There are only 2 existing STR-1 frames known. Note: Some people insist that what we know as the earliest loop tail quad was also an STR-1, even without the under the bb tubing. Some people also assert that there were quadangles out in 79 - beyond team riders, there is no objective evidence that is actually the case. Below are photos of the actual STR-1's known to the community. The first one was this one: and the more recent one that surfaced a couple years ago is this one:
  2. Yeah, it's on FB, partly it was in Table Top buy and sell, not sure if it was deleted or not, but some of it was direct message stuff that people shared with me.

  4. That guy with the fake GJS is such a jackass... the way he speaks to Utterback in some of the posts is unreal for a dude who is a design thief. He calls them a "tribute" but insults the original manufacturer. Real piece of work.
  5. probably... the software specialist who manages the upgrades seems to be busy this week. But will try to get something going on that.
  6. There was at least a small run OEM finishes... all on round top tubes. Rod Beckering confirmed it prior to his passing - he and some other factory guys also had them. My friend Dan came up on another blue one, in better over all condition than mine, in terms of the ano being less sun-faded and what not. Then I also found a gold one after the blue one. Gold also a round top tube, naturally. I also have a floval in Ano, that Kendall Crabtree confirmed doing the ano on for factory dudes. That would have been when Kendall was at SE. A lot of info came out over the years since this originally got posted.
