Awww....such a nice frame. Why can't today's bikes look so good?

Round tubing.
Nice welds.
Modest graphics that you can remove/replace.
Bare metal finish.

That's why I got rid of my GIANT with the word GIANT 32 times on the bike. I got tired of giving free advertising.

Great find. I can't wait to see what you do with this!

First I will finish my 16" Xizang, it should be done in about 2 weeks, then I will add some more pictures in that build thread.

This NOS frame will only be assembled if I have all the parts needed. Probably first as a "gag" on the wall and a sign with: "ready in 1-2 hours, if it really has to be", otherwise after almost 16 years of NOS status it would be a shame to use this frame :D

What find! I know it's been in its NOS state for a long time but I believe every Xizang longs to be ridden... And ridden fast ;)

Dude, don't get me started with a NOS GT frame war. Most of mine are older than yours too.

Nobody wanted to start a war ;)
I know most of your GTs though! They are gorgeous.
