SOLD for $1,500 minus the wheels, tires and seat for those curious about value.
The real deal 1997 Bass Boat Blue 19" Homegrown Factory hardtail. If someone has a 17" Bass Boat Blue frame they wish to trade, they get TOP Priority.
The details: Full XTR M-952 9 speed group with the exception of the hubs. The hubs are Phil Wood (rare cassette style) on Bontrager rims. Fork is the original Rock Shox SID without disc tabs. Titec Tianium stem, Yeti handlebar and Rock Shox suspension seatpost. Original NOS WTB Velociraptor tires. WTB Pure-V saddle.
Check the pics. This is more of a museum piece than a bike you hit the trails with. This deserves a respectful owner. If this was a 17" frame I would keep it forever. Ask any questions, and make resonable offers, but be advised this will be for sale on eBay unless the right offer or 17" frame trade comes through.
