I just sold my '04 Blur Classic to my brother-in-law a few months ago. My bike didn't have v-brake mounts, and I'm pretty sure all Blurs (they started in 2004) had discs from the get-go. So that part is a bit of a mystery.

If anything needs repair or replacement:

I can tell you that Santa Cruz still has the bearing kit for it, and it's $85. If the shock is from 2004 or near it, most likely the bike will have a lot of pedal bob as Fox didn't have any platform in the Float back then. You can compensate by running a lot of air pressure (say 12-15% sag), but it's a crutch. The fork can be rebuilt and the damper customized by various tuners like PUSH, Vorsprung, Avalanche, and so on. Or you can get a whole new fork - I ran 120mm on mine and it slackened the steering.

This is a wonderful first FS bike for a 17 year-old! He'll have a blast.
