thanks AndreZA,

the current owner thinks it might be a Giant, the closest frame ive found is a GIANT ATX DH, but its quite different....http://cicloviajes.com.ar/Bicicletas/Giant%20ATX%20One%20DH%202000.jpg

Come on guys, where's your old school MTB culture? If you ask me that's VERY similar to a mid 90's ROTEC design with the pivot on the BB Shell...

 

Not exactly, but damn close...

on 2nd look that look slike a homemade knockoff of the rotec

 

The rotec was the only bike to run the rear pivot AROUND the bb shell ... as this one does - but the shock mount and seat post section are different as is the main frame with weld points and the downtube - SEE PIC

this leads me to think that this is a homemade copy of the rotec .... BUT those are ZZYZX forks!

 

How much does he want for that? I wouldnt pay more than 2k cus that bike rode like a piece of crap back then ... so it will be even worse now!
