Rare "glitter" MC customized by Dragonfly
1996 Dragonfly "glitter" MC
I bought this frame (powdered glitter blue) named as a Double Dynamite on ebay. As i received the frame i recognized that it is shorter than a DD and it has the u-brake mounts welded on the chain stays and not on the seat stays as common. So i asked the seller about the U-brake mounts and he told me something about a prototype. As i removed the powder coating i saw the frame was originally chromed. The removal of the common brake mounts was done perfectly also the welds on the new positions on the chain stays.
The frame remained in my house for years. In the meantime a common MC crossed my way and this frame left forgotten in my garage. I tried to sell it but without success.
In 2016 i came back to the prototype story and decided to contact Stefan Ehrig from Dragonfly. He answered my question very quickly and told me that they customized a few MC's only on customers requests. He didn't know how many but mentioned "a few". Later on i met Stefan in real live and he replaced the threated u-brake mounts with "weld on" types.
Now with new powder coating i will build it for my daughter who is also responsible for the color :-) which includes some "glitter" as well. Pretty disco i call it ...
