Boss Hugo suspended folder - Anybody know who made it?

Stumbled on the sweet folder last year at a yard sale. Try as I may, I unearthed zero information web searching. Says "Made in Germany" on the right chainstay, and wears 9spd Ultegra. I estimate its weight at around 20lbs. I found NO serial numbers

Mysterious indeed, I have never seen that frame before. Such a well known brand but this is all I could find; some old auction.

The Both the derailleur and the cassette are Ultegra - the shifters are LX. Hubs are Deore. 406 wheels.

Thanks for the link - seller's address is in Australia - bike sold Aug 2014. At least we now know there's at least 2 of these critters. I plan to post better and more detailed images.

Hi I know all about these. There are three in total. Hand made by a well known quality source and quite a story behind them. I have the manual ( sizeable) and the decals for mine, never installed. Be reassured you have acquired an absolute bargain. This would have cost thousands new.

How it got to Aus is a total mystery.

Should have completed the note...made by Stevens in Germany, commissioned by Hugo Boss. One each for the members of ZZ Top and provided as part of a tour package.
