I found a new bike project

I decided to go to the Antique Bicycle Swap & Sale meet in the town I work in today. To my surprise I found a bike that I have been thinking about for some time now. A former riding partner of mine had one when they first came out and he let me use it for a week and I really enjoyed it's ride. But like anything life moves on and I never pulled the trigger on a bike like that. I did get a different bike by the same company years later and to this day still ride and love. The crazy thing is I was speaking with a friend of mine last week about that bike and how I've done a few searches for one over the last month. Then shortly after I arrive at the event what do I see, yup the bike. It's now in the bike cave and I will start the teardown process soon, and am looking forward to putting my little twist on her.

Congratulations on finding the bike. It will be interesting to follow its transformation into your vision.
Be safe, Frank.

Any way to find out what the bike is without watching a 15 minute video?

I found the bike right at the beginning of the event, very early in the video.
