Apparently, my photoshop mock up was a fairly good rendering, so much so that Rod thought it was the frame for a moment.  :double.take:

 

Rod responds...

What FB group is that in? It seems like a good discussion, but, I've not seen it in any feeds/groups I'm in.

they started an STR 1 page on FB but the main post is seen in the screen shot

 

I'd say it is authentic.

I think so too. The background story seems to feel legit.

Pretty certain it is. The Kahler family had a long association with Scot. Robert Senior managed to get Scot to hold an SE race where I thought I remember seeing one of the early frames although not necessarily the one in the pic.

(Coincidentally, it was also the race where me and Mike Hardaway put Scot and Rod over the berm and the OM came us really really mad, but I digress)

I'm pretty certain the guy who started the post, rode for the Finish Line shop. When he mentioned some details about who was getting it, I thought of Bob Sr. but dismissed the thought as the family never had a flair for the dramatic as this appeared to be.

Robert Kahler Jr. was an early #1 plate holder in the Cal-2 district and worked at GT for years and was partly responsible for the mountain bike innovations there.

Must also add that Pat Kahler RIP was also part of the equation and I remember her fondly and very happy the Kahlers have that frame.

Not only is it killer that it appears to be a legitimate frame but it's also amazing that Rick would have so much additional detail on who the owners are...

All right! Cool beans. Despite all the drama generated over the last couple weeks. And if it wasn't Rick laying down the knowlage I have a feeling it would have been Johnny Johnson. :comedy:

Ok, just to clarify. I am sure neither Robert Sr or Jr started the STR-1 Facebook page. It's still Ross doing it.
