I found this mountian bike frame in a dumpster while i was riding around it was just a frame and there was alot of bike parts lying around i found the front shocks to. so i thought i would take it home and see if it had any cracks in the frame . so i striped all the paint off and painted it with flat black spray paint . and to my surprise no cracks . so i took it down to the bike shop had the front shocks and a new head set put on and slowly began building my new winter bike . after all the work my bike was done . here are some pics . it was a Blue and White GIANT RAINER . thanks for reading and looking .

probably was stolen.
pic files named ebay on them ? Are you trying to sell it on ebay ? How/Where did you get the Giant logos/labeling ?

i put my pics of my bike under my ebay file . no this is one iam keeping , i got the logos from my local bike shop for free. and no its not stolen it looks like someone was thrown out of there building and all his garabge was thrown in the dumpster and if you would have seen the bike looked like it was garbage too. thanks for the comments guys... its surpising what a little hard work and a can of spray paint can do !!

It's nice to build your own bike. I'll bet you'll enjoy riding it that much more. Nice job.
