And then just this last month, an old friend suddenly posted on facebook that he's disposing a few bikes. I then contacted him immediately and inquired if he still has his Banshee Viento. Yes an XC/AM Hardtail in the 26 inch rims flavour. We conversed, and discussed as he's letting go of his Viento, and I decided to purchasing it from him.
And just recently, I picked it up from his folks' address, and so here it is bundled with a same year SF10 SRSuntour Epicon RLD set at 120mm travel.
It has been unused for some years already, so it needs a little polishing as well as a bit of servicing (especially that epicon). Hopeful that I'd be able to finish building this AM Hardtail by January 2015.

but thought the battlescars added additional appeal. Maybe next time.
