Please help identify an IH
Looking for a more pedal friendly alternative bike to my DH for longer non-shuttle trails.
I currently have a Transition TransAM HT with a 160mm fork as my second bike but the HT is proving to be increasingly difficult to catch up with the pack whom are all riding FS AM or FR bikes as the trails are still pretty rough.
Recently, I have found an IH frame in great condition for cheap in my local classifieds but have no idea what model it is (see attachment for pics). According to the seller, this should be a FR/AM frame.
Mainly, I need to know the amount of travel it has, the BB size, head angle, model and year to see whether I have the necessary parts to build up this frame and whether it would fit my application.

It looks like a Warrior model or similar iteration.
BB should be 73mm x 113mm.
Headset is FSA zerostack style.
HA is 70deg.
Travel is 5"
Looks like a size small.
Shock soze 7.5" x 2.0"
Yeah, after some research it appears to be the Warrior 6.0.
HOWEVER, it looked slightly different to the US versions with a curved top tube and a different down tube mounting bracket for the rear shock.
Appears a little strange as I am only able to find this exact variant on Chinese, Philippines and Russian websites. Could this be some sort of asia pacific variant or perhaps a fake?
Someone might fake a Sunday but I highly doubt anyone would waste their effort to fake a Warrior. They are sort of modeled after the SC heckler IMO and were considered a entry level bike.
