Sure. Techniums (Technii?) were made between '87 and '93 in Kent, WA, to take advantage of Boeing's research into bonding dissimilar metals. Technium is not a frame tubing, it's a way to bond dissimilar metals. The most common configuration is alu tubes bonded to cromoly lugs, but all kinds of variants were made, including this one in Reynolds 531.

Other than the Technium part, it's a fairly standard "funny bike," or time trial/pursuit bike. If you're thinking of riding this one yourself, I hope you are young and incredibly limber, because otherwise, this bike can be a lesson in self-flagellation.
