    Monoshock BMX Find ID?

    Found this bike at a local auction house, can't seem to find any other monoshocks with this style headtube...
    Looks perhaps like a Dan Gurney non monoshock BMX...
    Has been rattlecanned, so can't see anything other than what is in this extremely poor quality mobile ph pic...

    Cranks are cottered, forks dont look original to me, all the rest does though.

    Any ideas out there?
    Practically confirmed as buying it now.
    Will strip it down later and let the forums know if i find anything of use...

    thanks for any and all replies!


    p.s not sure why the orientation is off, i edited it to be round the right way...

    Yeah, the forks that are on it are probably aftermarket.
