I'd like to enter my 1987 Yeti FRO. This has been a real labour of love from day one.

I started with fairly sensible intentions - build a nice n clean Yeti HT, nothing too silly, keep the spec sensible. Then at some point I completely lost my mind, decided everything had to be period correct and suitable for an 87 Yeti. Rims took forever to source, original 2mm gear cable took six weeks to arrive by slow boat from Quebec, 6mm brake outers from a tiny bike shop in Wisconsin, FTW stem from Germany that seemed to go missing in the post forever. And the months it took me to find the M730 canti's in black! Only to realise I'd already got some :oops:

Build thread here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=177656

But what a blast it's been :lol: I thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope you do too...
