2001 Homegrown 17 inch built or frame only

Call off the search. I recently picked up an '01 comp for my wife from a Boulder CL ad someone had posted to the Homegrown FB page (thanks by the way). P.S. sorry to who ever offered $125 for him to hold it, I offered him $150 and a 6er of his choice. Must not have been a beer drinker. Luckily, My brother just moved to Denver and was able to pick it up that night. It was even cleaner than it looked in the picks. 2 boulder CL ads= 2 '01 comps!
/*---------------Since I recently had the pleasure of getting my hands on a 01' comp, to replace the one in the story below, I am now looking for a 17 inch for my wife so that she can also experience one of the greatest hard tails ever made. ---------------*/
/*--------------- I had my 2001 Homegrown Comp stolen out of my garage, in broad daylight, awhile back. I see this guy with my bike 4 years later, it had been painted beige, but I recognized all the after market parts that I had outfitted it with. Turns out, he got it after it had been seized by the cops in a raid. They put it up for auction where he got it for "dirt cheap" he said. He then says he wants 500 bucks for me to get "MY" bike back. The Cops won't do anything even though I have all the paperwork, literature, Photos of me on the bike, and I even have the leftover bit of plastic from when I added the chain stay protector to enter for forensics file (the ends will match up no doubt). Now I can't find the guy to try and buy it back. I just want my rosebud back, or maybe her cousin.

Sincerely,
Sleepless in my garage ---------------*/

Nice! I am glad that worked out. It is like I performed a little community service.

Now if someone can help me locate and secure a 1997 21" Factory Hardtail in bass boat blue, the good karma I put out there will have gone full circle. Smile

I will keep my eyes out for a 97 21" BBB. I was lucky enough to find a 19" one locally. They really sparkle in the sun.

Haha! Thanks Jeff! That is a nice looking bike! Did it come like that or did you build it up? Can I ask what you paid for it?

I bought the whole bike but only used the frame for this build. All the parts I took off the frame were not original, but the frame was in great shape with only a few spots on the seat stays that needed a touch up. I don't remember exactly what I paid for it, but it was around $500. Currently I have a little over $2000 in the build counting what I paid for it. NOS period correct parts aren't cheap. I currently have changed the tires to Specialized Fat Boys and am using it as a hybrid.
