Here’s our fully custom 1989 old-skool Giant mountain bike ready for your test ride! It’s a bit of a hot rod… we had its frame, fork, stem, bars and bar-ends powdercoated in a custom black & white colour scheme (with new decals) then we built it up with restored period-correct Shimano 21 speed Hyperglide transmission and sprinkled it with NOS purple anodized components and lots of new bits & pieces such as pedals, chain, brake pads, cables, grips, end plugs, chainring bolts, QR skewers, frame bolts… the wheels have been completely overhauled, as have the crank bearings and original seatpost. A cool and fully fettled retro ride for bumpy roads and tow paths, or fully ladened all-terrain touring and retro XC trail duties. Awesome brakes, predictably sweet handling and crisp transmission back up the skinwall tyres and classy colour scheme. The cable routing and chainstay-mounted u-brake give the finished bike a super-clean look around the top tube and seatstays
