I had both images on my bedroom wall and I think I still have them somewhere.

Stu on the STR classic image of course.

I especially liked the racing shot. Stu for a brief minute with a Beavers (my LBS) co sponsor patch which happened late in 79 right before Redline.  I thnk Sewell on the Jag and of course Nachman on the goose bringing it on hard.

Looks good even with a coaster brake.                                             I’m not familiar with the STR-1 . I saw a couple of quads here and there BITD at the track but didn’t know about the STRs. Did other pro riders besides STU race it? They seem to be very rare. How many were made?

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:

Thank you for the clear and informative answer. It’s amazing that these are the only two found.
