    Apparently not! But you've piqued my interest - if it's the dame company as Tuff wheels and TA fame.

    EDIT: apparently there was only one - called the Lemurian. Had a triple butted (OX Ultra?) True Temper frame. That's all I can find. Would like to see a picture if anyone can find one.

    Here's a pic:


    Catalog PDF here:http://www.ajkbikes.com/downloads/ca...%20Catalog.pdf

    It's an Exage group on it, so nothing too special but will interest the BMX guys.

    What vintage are we looking at? Were the frames built at their Reading facility or farmed out to Asia?
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    That's a 1988 catalog - the frame looks similar to a million-and-one other asian frames I've seen, possibly Toyo, maybe Miyata?

    As has been mentioned numerous times before, "Built in USA" was open to wide and varied interpretations back then.
