Good News: Found some White Bros HardBody Cartridges and Hard [190lbs+] Springs so I can rebuild the Judy DHs..

Bad News: Waiting list at Argos Racing Cycles for paint means I won't get the FAT back until......May 14 :shock:

This frame is in "Team Violet", but no info this was raced by a Fat Chance Team Member etc.

As for Pre Production, no idea.. Found some great info on the creased pyramid-like gusset tho, which I always thought was one of the coolest details on Yo's/SABs..

The downtube gussets were originally punched and folded from 4130 sheet but later ones were laser cut from 1.375 4130 tube and fit much better. Some people like the look of the creased gusset plates but I liked the laser cut ones better.
