1997 Homegrown Factory F/S XTR Restoration project

Up for grabs is my restoration project. Purchased the 17" frame 3 years ago and have been painstakingly gathering the best M952 XTR I could find. As well as the original fork. Which is stock no speed springs or anything works like a champ. Rear shock as well. The paint is killer and still sparkles and shines its a real eye catcher. I have spent countless hours polishing the rear triangle and is free of any chainsuck marks on chainstay. The three scratches in pic are the only major imperfections $500.00 and I'll ship anywhere on earth at your cost. Contact me for much nicer pics through email at

. I don't want to sell but unfortunately I have to.

Looks great. What did you use on the rear triangle? Also, what size is it, center of BB to top of seat tube?

I used mothers polish 1000 grit and 2000 grit wet sand. Polished by hand not machine, it looks cloudy in pics Cause it’s been about month since I did it, fingerprints and such. I wanted it to look real nice not try and fool someone into thinking it was brand new by super high polishing it . So it's not perfect. It just looks very lightly used.

Cool, always interesting to see the different methods for polishing the clear anodized aluminum on these frames. I'd be interested in the frame but I need to come up with some monies.
