Sorry, I can't help much. Check the frame material to determine if it's magnetic (=steel). That will help somewhat.

I think that the wishbone seatstay(s) will also help identify.

Custom? Rather Sweetpea-esque when you think about/look at it. That HT space makes me want to weld a gusset in there.

Dunno. Looks like comfortable geometry though.

The wishbone seatstay looks like the ones that Trek's have. But I've never seen a Trek that looked like that.

It's titanium, (the photo names mention Haro, so that's a good bet). The components date it to 1995/1996, although it might be older.

That frame is huge, it's for a rider 6'3" or taller.

Yeah, I saw the Haro in the pic name, but I related it to a username more than a bike.

Closest Haro that I'd consider would be the Impasse, but it didn't have a wishbone, just an A-frame.

Todd Lyons rode a Haro mtb in 1995, it may have had a wishbone. Trip in the wayback machine.

Yeah it's older, notice the rear cantilever cable stop on the rear.

Definitely titanium, but I'm pretty sure that Haro didn't make a Ti bike in the mid-nineties.

I'm at a loss. We should go recruiting.

Huh?

The brake and shift levers are either STX or Alivio, the cranks are Topline, the rear brake is an XT v-brake -while the front is an LX, the headset looks like a very old King without the laser etched logos... etc.

You're 5'7"? Do you have 4" of clearance when you straddle the top tube?

I would say yes, but the Bontrager Ti's that I have seen have a shorter headtube, but... It's as close as I've seen.

$100.00? Ride it like you stole it, because for that price, you did.

$100? Quite a deal... You'd be much better off selling it, and buying something that fits...
