    Can anyone identify this model?

    Found online, but the seller says the model is an E200. Google returns nothing for those numbers.
    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it worth building on? ....at least for a commuter?

    It's most likely a 1996 F200 which used the CAD1 (diamond) traditional frame for sizes XL-M, and the Killer V frame for the small frame model. They used this frame for most of the small F & H Series from the mid 90s to early 2000s. The Killer V was also a model during this time that was an upgrade from from the Delta V. These frame are strong and super stiff. They make great commuters and always serve as a conversation piece because of their unique design. My wife rides a stock 1997 H300 w/700C rims and loves it. I have a 1996 KillerV in size XL that I converted to a single speed BMX Cruiser and love it.

    only problem i see is the 1 inch threaded steerer, there's no good suspension for this, so you will have to limit yourself to a rigid fork if the elastomers are shot.

    Anyone with any good fork suggestions?

    Your selection of suspension forks is going to be very limited due to the 1" steerer. These are two I found on Ebay. Manitou RS Marzocchi Custom Build Z2 Adam Race 80 w 1 or 1 1 8" Steerer | eBay , Manitou Elastomer Fork 1" with RARE Very Long 9" Steerer Vintage Retro Classic | eBay Then I found this if you can find a fork you could just swap the steerer crown off of to work for your frame RockShox 1" Crown Steerer Tube from Mag 21 TI | eBay
