Hi guys, I wasnt sure where to post this so i posted here and the GT section. Anways i recently purchased this frame just because i have never seen a frame like it. I was told it was a prototype test bike that GT had made just before they came out with the first Idrive bikes.I was told by the guy that this is one of ten frames made before the idrive actually came out. Any input or information you guys have would be greatly appreciated.

The rear end has been replaced with an 1999 blue version, the front triangle most likely is pre-retail. as the retail frames never had a curved seat tube.

I got ahold of GT and here is there response. They said it looks to be an early prototype from 97-98 and that they only made between 5-10 of these frames at the Santa Ana facility. Pretty cool piece of history i guess. Looks like ill be hanging it on the wall for now. Maybe ill get some graffiti remover and take off that black paint.
