Hi there! I acquired this 1999 Homegrown Factory from a client who'd had it hanging in a garage for years. He knew I'd do something with it so, lucky me! It was a Frankenstein of components, some of which were broken or otherwise unusable. While I sourced components from eBay (trying desperately to keep cost down) I went about stripping paint (that stuff is thiiiick). As I'm not much of a mountain biker I wanted to make it a climber more than anything. I hope you like it.
