i've been contemplating slapping a last minute bid on this uber top trump ace of a retro frame all week.... although after a few days contemplation spending a thousand dollars on a bunch of unjoined unrideable pipes is pushing the limits of wall hanger retro even for me ;) :lol:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... %3AIT&rd=1

given the immense rarity of this frame I'm surprised the seller didnt go into more detail.. I guess its so well known maybe he didnt need to?
(if for some wild reason you dont know what this is, firstly check out www.yetifan.com, then beat yourself with a broken moratti ti crank arm & HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME!)

man was durango worlds really 1990... time flies...

any ideas on how much you reckon it'll make? I reckon $1500. high, but then I've never seen 1 on ebay before (unless I've missed 1?)

I think the seller is more a bike dealer than anything else . so he might not know the full story behind it .

I am sure that if you take it to the yeti factory they might glue it for you . that is after all one of the frame which created the legend of yeti bikes .
