Hi
I'm new here, writing from Italy. I am the only retro geek in town and this site makes me feel less lonely. By the way, I'd like to know if somebody can give me some info about my Yeti kokopelli. I know it's a strange mix of Easton Elite/elan tubes with an ARC top tobe. Moreover, I also have an Ibis "Avion", queer rig indeed, apparently made in Japan. It has a 6 speed Suntour group, but I know scarcely more. I've seen another one in the first flight bike site, but I think mine is more recent (no u-brake). Let me know
Ciao

Sorry I've written anothe message cause I couldn't retrieve this. My Koko has still the original pait. You should get two stickers of the Kokopelli indian god which graced the seat tube. I saw a pair on ebay a couple of days ago.. Anyway, the frame was produced in 95 and 96.

I would say, your english is very good for a french guy.
Do you speak english in the allo allo (the comedy) way?
Don't think so, I don't sepak dutch with a german accent.

btw, recently I saw a very beautiful Yeti frame on .com ebay. White, with a white Reba. Jummie!!!
