Medici - El Dorado frame ????

Has anyone ever heard of a Medici El Dorado frame? I can't find any information on it.
I'm familiar with Medici Pro Strada - but not El Dorado.

The frame has the plain Medici decal on the down tube (no stars).

There are two decals on the seat tube (above and below the tiger) that say El Dorado.

There is no decal on the chain stay. The Columbus sticker has also been removed.

El Dorado was used for lugged and tig welded frames, Visual information would help. Medici has and interesting history. One of the major players is in jail, but thats a hairy story. Clue there.

be seeing you

Sad, yet funny story that one... Maybe he secretly wanted to be a hairdresser. He would have loved my wife's hair. A shame though; he's quite a talented frame builder.
