1987 Secret Cycles

1 of 6!!

Please look at the pics and keep your eyes peeled and let me know if you EVER have seen one or find one. I will make it worth your while!! I would love to find another one!
  In late 1987, while both on the Editorial staff of BMX Plus! and American Freestyler, my partner Scott Towne and I had 6 of these frames made by Chris Herting and Jim Emerson of American Iron. One chrome (sold in Canyon Country CA in August '88), two black (here's mine) and three red. I can now only account for mine. Scotts was stolen out of the GT Bicycles team van in '88 (I think in the Huntington Beach area), another red one was stolen/picked off the side of a mountain after a car accident around 88/89, and a red one was sold used to a guy (not by me) at the Simi Valley BMX track in the early 90's and the final one disappeared, sort of, after our rider Chris Daley (Palmdale/U local dirt jumper) moved on to a larger frame, he kind of lost track of it.
 I'd like to get one back for Scott as these frames carry a lot of sentimental value for both of us. So please, jog your memory, ask your friends, search Craigslist/pawn shops/flea markets/bmx tracks/etc.
 I made a modern (1996) version (25 of them) with a wishbone seat tube, canti mounts, threadless headset, and similar/yet different rear dropouts. If you find one of those, that's cool and I'd like to hear about it, but I'm really after this particular first generation model. Thanks.
