Thanks Ryan! I also scored Vital MTB's bike of the Day with this build. It was a lot of fun building it. I've alway loved how the square tubed DHR's look. If you plan on doing a restore, make sure you can get all the parts needed first before you dive in to a project. I would love to do a Chumba F5 build next.

Thanks! I scored Bike of the Day at Vital MTB with it too. It's still just a garage queen, never ridden. It's almost too nice looking to get dirty! I'll let the next owner enjoy it so it feels like their buying a new bike. Plus, I'm totally happy riding riding my 2014 Intense M9 at the moment. 26 for life! Check it out. https://www.vitalmtb.com/community/Roy,31872/setup,38734

This is a 2005 Turner DHR (square tubed) in a size small. Like new. Frame is clean, no dents or cracks. I restored this bike as a project. I sandblasted the frame and used and aluminum dye to check for any stress cracks before going forward with this build. Frame is painted Bayside blue on top of a silver base. Decals are new from Slik Graphics. All bearings, hardware, bushing and dust covers are new from Turner. Wheels are custom build by Cycles Etc with Hope Pro 4 hubs, DT swiss black spokes and blue nips laced to Sun Ringle inferno 31rims. I will list the rest of the parts below. I also applied 3M 2228 mastic tape to the chain stays to protect the frame from chain slap damage. This bike has never even been ridden yet. It's currently just a garage queen. All parts are BRAND NEW, never used.

I can provide you with more pictures if need be. I have all of the receipts for all the parts listed too. If you want the bike shipped, I can give you the contact info of my local bike shop and you can work out a price to have the bike shipped to you at your expense. I'm open to trading for a clean Chumba F5 or a high end enduro/trail bike. Thanks for looking!

Thanks! It use to be black. Back in the day I seen a blue one at a NORBA race at mount snow in Vermont and thought it was one of the coolest bikes I've seen. And about a year ago I found a clean frame on eBay with no dents or cracks for cheap. So I checked to make sure I could still buy original frame hardware and decals for it before committing to this project. So this is my end result. Everything on this build is brand new. Only original parts are the frame, rear axle. Linkage bearings, hardware and seals are all new too. I haven't even ridden it. It's currently a garage queen. I plan on selling it. But I haven't had a chance to take better photos of it to post. Plus, I love walking into the garage and looking at it.
