    I just rebuilt this PB and am having difficulty finding much info on him.
    Can anyone shed some light on this?
    Thanks

    Got an email back from PB-

    Bike was made in 90/91, has same paint job as a batch of bikes that were made for the owners of Softride.
    He made 300 bikes from 1995-1995.

    Sweet looking ride, any close-up photos of those fillets? I faintly remember seeing one of these on ebay in the past year or so, but classy looking ride!
