grabbed this the other day to help a lady out that could not sell it. A $175 purchase, quick fluff and buff, some new key parts and she is ready to go!

Thanks Elmore. Shame I cannot get it dirty because it is a flip. Last of the hand built in the U.S.A. triple-butted Cromo frames. Seemed to ride awesome on a quik test ride after the freshening up. Nice components with the DeoreLX/Stx-Rc mountain mix. It had street tires on it when I bought it. It had never seen the dirt. I put it back to original purpose. It belongs in the woods!

I figured as much. My Brother wants it, which means I will have to give it away! I tried for years to not let the family know what I do. But since my house looks like a bike museum it was tough to hide! Ha

You must like your brother; for my brother, the price would be $550- plus shipping, packaging and handling - probably about $750- all in  Smile

Thanks George, she is smooth as silk. 16.5 in frame. I could use more post if I kept her. Not bad size for me if just using for singeltrack. I got it just flip more or less. I just do not know how much longer I can keep her clean, I am ready to put it thru the paces!

Well, easy come easy go! Wish it was more my size. Sold for a smooth $350. Not bad for a 1999. The smile on that 11yr olds face Priceless! I have to vote his Dad, "Father of the year"
