Help identifying a frame?

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction in identifying this bike? It's obviously been repainted and the owner wasn't sure what type of bike it was.



If/when I pick it up, I'm going to see if there's any way to identify if it's stolen. :-/ Wasn't planning on winning this auction. I'm asking the current owner for receipt/proof of ownership etc.

why does it matter if you are not planning on winning the auction?

Oh, I *wasn't* planning on winning the auction, but did. I put in what I considered a 'tracking' bid, and it won.

Yeah yeah, I know you can 'watch' an auction. It's a bad habit of mine putting in what I consider low ball bids before fully researching things.

Based on the fact that it has an extremely long stem and that it is running brake boosters...its a trials bike (well, its been used as one anyhow), so you might take it to a observedtrials.net and see if anyone knows anything about it.
