They're made in the Netherlands. RIWA frames are made by Rieks van der Wal. I don't know how to get in contact with him though. He's an older guy so I don't think he knows a lot about the internet.

But I remeber they used to be very popular with big frame conversions on Honda 150s when they first came about

In the U.K. Anyway

I have no idea how you can buy one but i remember that they were(maybe still are) incredibly popular in Sweden. Bigger frames and longer swing arms is not allowed in Finnish racing so no one had them here.

I feel like they were mostly used with the CRF150, RM85 and SX85. I have no facts to back this up but i remember when i was a kid and used to read through the Swedish version of craigslist and you could find a lot of CRF150s with them.
