I have a 97' bass boat blue Homegrown Ltd frame. Bought it and built it up with custom parts the way I wanted it. Rode the hell out of it and got so much out of it, what a piece of machinery!! So strong and light. I bought the frame brand new through some friends that owned a shop and were Schwinn dealers. We ordered 2, one for me and and one for my buddy, who was one of the owners sons. It has a dent on the chain stay yoke and some chipped away decals and paint. I had the idea of having it sand blasted down to the primer at some point but never did. Honestly it's not bad, I've actually seen much worse. There are only a few spots where the paint is chipped mostly from rocks flying up underneath the bbracket. One time I was riding and stopped to help someone replace a tube on the trail, and had the bike leaning up on a log and it fell over. I rushed over like it was my baby or something and upon inspection saw a small dent on the chain stay yoke. It tore at me wether it would effect the structural integrity of the frame to the point that I drove up to Ted Wojcik's shop in Georgetown, ma or NH, can't remember it was 20 yrs. ago, to ask him what he thought. He said it would be fine and would cause no further damage to the strength of the frame. He made the point that it could actually make it stronger Where it was compressed, because when you compress metal it becomes tighter so to speak and therefor stronger. It actually made sense to me, and it was an honor to meet Ted. I took what he said and rode the hell outta that bike for the next 5 yrs. until I got my 2001 Rocket 88 stage 1, and 2001 Homegrown Ltd "the gold one", thus retiring it.

So with all that said, never in my lifetime did I think I'd be parting with them, but I do have a 97' Homegrown Ltd. Bass boat Blue 15" frame for sale. If your still interested, make an offer..........will post pics later when I get a chance. Just thought I'd put the bug in your ear first.....
