just because you cant find a picture of another crossbow does not mean that ^ frame is not a crossbow. I think it is.

I have Specialzed Langster and you will never find the same anywhere. But it is Specialized Langster. The guy worked in LBS and purchased as a frameset, with promotionol color.
My wife used to have bike with promotional color too... it was unique too...

It happens sometimes with colors of frames.
