At one time, Mantis was the ultimate cult bike. It had all the ingredients; eccentric founder that made bikes sporadically, cutting edge designs, mythical performace. MBA editor Richard Cunningham started Mantis, but eventually sold the operation. Now I think they're out of business.

Pro-Floater - This Pro-Floater is from the post Cunnigham Mantis, and you can tell by the square section tubing in the rear section. An excellent bike with minimal travel (by today's standards).

Valkyrie - I only vaguely recognize this name. But it sure is a beauty hey? Gotta love those 80's bikes!!
