But I'm sitting here thinking about it, and I'm remembering that the frame ( a smallish cruiser type) was a bit unusual in construction. Is there an online reference to these, or can someone tell me more about them?

They used to give those away with the purchase of a full set of tires for your car. If you're going to go over to the dark side, you can turn in your Fuji Team over at mswantak's place.

But seriously, they are kind of different, but nothing special without a large helping of nostalgia to go along with them..
