Powertec White rack

Hi, I believe Powertec made a white colored rack previously but does anyone have one or can confirm around what year these were made. Also, if anyone has one, can they confirm whether the newer attachments are compatiable (i.e. 60mmx60mm square tubing, 1" pins accessories). Thanks.
