Sailplane ID help please

I bought the sailplane in the attached photo from a fellow who did not know the name of the kit. He had converted it to a powered glider with an Enya .15. I'd like to return it to an unpowered plane or possibly electric power. With that in mind I would like to learn the name of the plane so I could find the information necessary to fabricate the missing wing joiner rod, set the CG, and investigate mods that others have done to the same plane.
The wing span is 100". Main panel chord is 10". Wing tips are the Horener style. Stabilizer, fin, and rudder are a geodesic type of construction. My suspicions are that it may be from the Craftair catalog but I haven't been able to confirm that.
Thanks for your assistance.
David

Here's a thread with a few photos from the plans. CG is shown in one of them.
