I think this is a GVP, but I wouldn't stake my life on it.
 
C/R motor bracket and lightened guide brace.
 
Seems to have a few extra rails.
 
Only $40 & shipping.

Looks like it may have been a Z rail originally and was soldered up.

Got a bit dizzy trying to trace out the rails and solder joints. I'm guessing it was soldered this way to meet the IRRA definition of rails connecting front to back?

Not totally one of mine. Fork rails not tied together at the rear.

 

Looks like some one was attempting a Z-rail Can-Am.  It might have been a really early one of mine that someone tinkered with and changed the rails and a bunch of other stuff. Has a rear brace inside of the motor bracket like I use now. But others have copied that. 

 

Sure fire test would be GVP engraved under the guide tongue.

I was gunna say, see if it says GVP on the underside of the guide tongue, it looks like it might be a car Greg sent me and I soldered on it after trying it.
