Lightning Bolt Frame

I have a Frame and I don't know much about it but it has some unusual features and was wondering if I could get some help IDing it.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Deadwrench.

Yeah, I have no clue what this one is.

What's the point of having a bike if you're not going to ride it?

Re: Lightning Bolt Frame

I looked at some skyways on this site and the cutout on the rear drops is different.

Re: Lightning Bolt Frame

I see what you mean.I was looking at the top tube,which definately pulls off a Skyway look.The down tube should be oval instead of round.Mine is anyway.I guess it's just a close copy.I didn't see any lightening drops on the freestyle frames,either.

Re: Lightning Bolt Frame

i was thinking cw when i seen the topic too.

sorta looks like the specialized cut out. the forks look to be akisu's. they came on hutch exel's. i am in need of a set of pegs to fit these. they use a different size than most. i have 4 different pairs and non fit.
