As I recall, Yosemites grew 1.25 head tubes in 1990. My guess if yours was made in February (B)of 1989 (9). Probably made by Giant in Taiwan, or maybe Kawamura in Japan. I'm pretty sure it's not a Toyo built frame...

...and it sure aint a Teesdale! :lol:

But it will be a nice fun bike with a little work. Good cro-mo frames like these are nifty to play with, and as you've discovered, Yokotas are rare.

Mine is about 4 years newer or so, so a lot changes within 4 years...Note mine has three noodles on the seat tube, where this (white) 1990-1 Yosemite has only 1. The grey is on eBay now, and has been for eons. I think it's an 88. Cool smokey paint.

I say this because ,why the numbers 1234 at the end like someone was going to start serial numbers from that point on.

Nope. Just "Yokota" on the dropouts.
