finding some NUKE PROOF history

Last week i was contacted by a very kind lady, Anne, trough the Serotta Forum.
She told me some very interesting things about the NUKE PROOF brand and showed me a few pictures of an old catalog.
She will send me some high res pictures and i will show that here and tell what she tell's me about NUKE PROOF

Some more of my history. I acutally had a 1993 that I bought from them at a discount that had a slighty ovalized headtube (blue loctight kept the headset solid). I cracked the toptube on the '93. a half inch crack starting @ the seattube. The company was nice enough to send me a new 1995 frame. Been riding it ever since. I have the roach badge on mine and there are no other markings on the BB. Syncros stem and cranks, king wheels, 1992 XTR.
Thanks TS
