Leopard dc-1 info?

Hey
I'm considering getting a used Leopard dc-1 .
I read a couple of good reviews but the company is now closed.
Is it a good bike?
Why did they close in the first place?

Friend of mine had one - serious criterium geometry. He liked it. Raced it for about 3 years and it broke in a crash. Now he has a Wilier; likes it better.

It's super light (IIRC 2.2lbs for a SM) and pretty stiff.

Hi, Did you end up buying the Leopard? I found a good deal on one and was wondering about it.
Thanks
