    Any markings on the BB shell?

    The rear end is likely an AMP. The whole frame may be, too, though many small builders used the AMP rear.

    Are we sure this isn't a Wal-Goose frame? Didn't some of the dept. store bikes come with the Amp-style suspension?

    It also has a Noleen fork.

    Heres another detail shot.

    The serial #s are on the head tube. That's weird in its own right.

    I say AMP for the back too.

    Correct, the BB is bare.

    I am with the AMP chorus, but I didn't know they ever made 1 1/8 headsets frames which I thought was the Mega-Air. When did AMP stop making bikes, I though it was before the 1 1/8 headset "relolution?"

    And the Mega-Air . . . light and one of the first to push 32mm. The chrome stantions wore quickly for me.

    whatever it is, it looks like it hasn't been used in awhile (maybe a barn find), or at least not well taken care of. rusty vee post bolts and pad hardware, rusty rear QR, rusty hardware on craptastic plastic pedals.

    The way it's built suggests it was a quality build at one time, though. I haven't seen canti posts that were bolted on before. usually they're welded on. I'd say the curved top tube also suggests a better builder. This thing can't be newer than 2000, I'd say, and curved aluminum tubes were not common back then because it's not easy to do that.

    What is odd to me is the v. low level rusty parts such as the brakes. The bolt on cable clips on the downtube are odd too. The rims look really cheap. Is that a Noleen shock on the rear? I still say Wal-Amp...I can feel it flexing through the picture ;)

    Could it be a K2 Razorback?

    that was the mass produced bike with this suspension design I was thinking of but could not recall the name. I've never seen one in person so I'm not sure if any of the small details match.

    Close, but I don't think so.

    It is definitely "not" a K2 Razorback.
    But it is a 1999' Titus Racer x

    What the links not working, it just worked for me. Click and once the black screen appears give it a minute to load.

    Yeah you guys are right it's not. My brain can usually pick these old rides out. There were a number of knock offs with this basic frame design but for some reason they have escaped my memory. Time for some Ginkgo. It most definitely is a 1998-1999' time frame.

    I'm trying to decide if I should rebuild it or not.

    I would hold off until you figure out what you got. Although the components scream a good brand. The Noleen fork was concidered a good fork. They never made it main stream. Some companies used them to appear more high end than the norm. Most of the parts have been upgraded from the year of the frame.
