When I saw this Giant for sale with a full Shimano STX groupset, I just couldn't resist. It had been babied and was in near mint condition. A little TLC from MBW was all it needed to be showroom beautiful again.
This bike was barely ridden and always stored indoors so it was in excellent condition. The paint on the frame restored so well that someone who came to visit thought I had painted it. The components just needed a good ultrasonic cleaning and they were as good as new. I really didn't care for the look of the stem that came with it so I replaced it with one that I thought gave it a better look while maintaining a comfortable riding position. The original seat had one tiny flaw that was hardly noticeable so it didn't need replacement. It even has the original reflectors. This bike looks like it time-travelled off the 1995 showroom floor and found it's way to today. Someone is going to really enjoy riding this bike on the local rail trail, greenway and bike paths around town.
