Sort of.  It was scratch built by Pat Dennis for me.  He built two like this one from Aurora bodies he cut in half to widen back in late '67/early '68.  One was a gift to Oscar Koveleski and the one he kept was destroyed in the process of his making the TycoPro  Cobra tooling.  Pat built this third wide body for me a while back.  If you look close he even put my name on the door.

Here's a bit of info on Pat and his work before and for Tyco:

Speaking of bikes...

I've designed and built and few frames over the years. Paint them too and made the head badges.

Very cool.  I've shortened forks and changed braze ons but never built a frame.  Painted more than a few.

When it comes to pushies, this is more my style...

 

That photo is when I got my bike (bringing it back on the train) - most of the other photos of it are a bit blurry ;)

Way more efficient (and comfortable) than most of mine but people tell me I'm stuck in the 70s.  I disagree though.  I have one foot firmly stuck in the 60s  Here's a pair of 69s both built in November '68.

I think I got my first pushbike in about 1978, trainer wheels and all ;)
I dare say your bike is more efficient - a lot more rubber on mine. Nothing like full suspension and 2.5" tires for those mountain trails though.

P.S: I'd quite like to take the '69 in the background off your hands :D
