I picked up this old Giant frame with the intentions of building an entry level bike to ride on moderate trails so thus far, the components are lack luster and most of it was taken off an old bike. I didn't even know what model it was since all the decals were took off it, but I made a call to Giant so I can get some tube sizes and from the serial, they determined it was an 04 XTC frame. I sent it to West Coast Powder Coating in San Bruno where Chris did an awesome job putting a 20% white job on it, which makes it looks like a matte white finish. All the parts were just bought online and its 95% percent done thus far. I also have my decals coming in and I still have to airbrush my front badge to black.
