    Help Identify this Lefty

    I bought what appeared to be an 05 Prophet by the frame color. I really just needed the frame. However while I was looking at it, it was apparent to me that a lot of the parts have been swapped. This Prophet had a Lefty Max 130 on it, even though the other two my family has have a 140 on it. So I'm wondering if this is an older lefty. I remember it's only the 05 and newer that can be converted to PBR. Can someone (I'm thinking Mendo) identify what year this fork is?

    Looks like a pre 2005 lefty Max 130 which I believe can't be converted to pbr which can only be done on 2005 and up.
    It's probably a replacement frame....Those forks came on some early Gemini frames, Jeckylls and I believe last year Super V's.
    Original frame broke, owner got a Prophet frame as a replacement and all parts except for the rear shock and Front derailleur were moved over to the new frame.

    Yep, pre 2005 Max 130 TPC.

    Nice fork still, just not able to be PBR'd is all.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!
