Wanted: 17" Factory Suspension frame or complete bike

Yes I’m on the hunt again.  My wife loves my bike so I’m looking for another one for her.  I’d found a S-10 but it’s a Tomato or nothing she says.  :)  

It has to be a 17”, full suspension.  Year isn’t important, but if I could have my wish list I’d ask for a model with the rear disc mount.  Andrew

Not an expert on these but this one is in Denver. Not sure if you know anybody in Denver because the guy won’t ship. To me it looks like a 95 or a 96. http://denver.craigslist.org/bik/5671361289.html

That one is a 19” so won’t work for her.  :-(  Mirror image of mine though.

Gotta be a Sweet Spot? This Rocket 88 is pretty sweet, but I am not sure what size it is. It has V brakes on it but it could have the 22mm rear disc option, not sure. https://wausau.craigslist.org/bik/5950605714.html

Here's one on the Homegrown FB page. The guy's name is Tom Martin.
Hey guys- I've got a nice one I need to part with. It's a 17" homegrown fs frame, I had it refinished in gloss black and a dark blue. The frame was sent to John Castellano himself to have the pivot machined, and brand new pivot tube and bushings installed. Hoping it can go to someone in the group before eBay. I'm not sure what to do on price? I've got a good amount into it, but it's 100% done and ready to build.
It's blue with a black rear end. It looks really good.

Can you post pictures? I might be interested if it is a 19" frame.

I posted one over in the for sale area and there's a bunch in general. Here's a link to the restoration photos in general:

This is just the frame, the components are going to be transferred to my new 17".
