Me neither, but that Ibis blue is always such a beautiful color.

The description does say that the canti bosses and dropouts were added to the frame, so I’d say, no, Ibis probably never did make a Spanky like this. My Spanky is the best-riding bike I’ve ever owned, and I can’t see how this mod would be an improvement.

sold my Spanky

But at least to an enthusiastic friend who is relatively new to cycling. And he already knows the value and joy of Sonoma steel.

It could be an one off. A decal is just a decal.
Paint seems to be Ibis blue.

His eBay item descriptions were truly superb.
