Yes it was. I'm pretty sure Brad Proctor from PTF is the same guy that opened Off the Edge in Sechelt back in the late 90s/2000s. I recall him saying he used to build frames. I also read Kim Steed's father in law is the Townsend. Neat history.
They seem to be a real rarity from the research I've done.
I believe Jim Moulden started out building frames for Brad, before starting to make his own frames under his own name, at his own shop.
