    ahahahhaha mitch found that on ebay a while ago. it looks to be a real coustellier, but previoiusly it was going under a different name, i forget what. everything about it seems to point towards it being a real coustellier, but i still dont trust it.

    that is the x-trials frame that used to be up on ebay

    i think the dude decided to take off the stickers

    from the close ups i've seen of the frame, it seems to be a coust

    he was intending to sell them for around $900 when i had a talk to him a while, he seemed like a dodgy guy.. who has plenty of 'coust' frames sitting up in taiwan

    btw, i think it was this forum which had a thread about this frame a little while ago, try searching for it

    "if I send you a check for $5000, send me back the change and then send the money via western union to nigeria, then through italy, then outer mongolia, back round through luxembourg and then on to tibet."

    Trust me everything will be fine...

    nope on that cutout, only the brothers have that kind of cutout. The ones we got in the u.s. have the same looking cnc thing as the xtrials ones. It looks just like my bike. cept no stickers.

    It is a Coust.
    The pictures that Philth posted were from the prototype frames that got made for them, over a year ago. Have you seen any recent pictures of the frame? All the production ones look like that.
