So, I have been on the hunt for a nice L/XL Attitude in Sunburst for about 10 years now. I have owned 2 but one was too small and the other had a dent and bent frame.:(
I spotted this one 3 years ago doing a google search and emailed the owner to let him know if he ever wanted to part with it to give me a ring.
I emailed him about every 4-6 months and low and behold 2 weeks ago he agreed to sell.
That made me very happy.
So here it is.
It is not NOS but pretty dang close.
It was hanging in a shop in Northern California for 14 years before it was sold.
The fella I bought it from had the shop turn it into a "Fat Tire" cruiser so it never saw any dirt/mud.
I will be building it with M900 XTR to start but at some point would like to do a all Black build.

Very nice! Is that a late 92, still with a 27.2 seat tube?

It has to be a late 92 because it has a 27.2.
I had always thought that Sunburst was not available till spring 93.
Any thoughts?
