1987 YETI FRO - Silverfish First Build
Figured it was high time I started a thread on at least one of my Yeti project bikes. Have been busily accruing bits and pieces and thanks must go out to JustKev and Scant for the cracking advice and help they have both given me over the last few months.
Still missing a few significant parts for this build so progress might be slow the next few weeks - I am worried that finding a pair of period correct 32h rims might prove more difficult than I had imagined, especially as I am being so anal about them being genuine 1987 versions, not 1990's with newer logos. Just want to make sure I get this first project right
Feel free to give me the heads up if I've made some schoolby error. Memory isn't as good as it used to be and I was a sprightly 16 when this bike first hit the dirt.
Finally managed to source some Yeti seat collars now so at least I can get the seatpost and saddle sorted. The rims and FTW stem are going to be the only parts that really hold this build up - oh, and am still looking for a front and rear minty pair of Shimano M730 cantilevers (in black) - the ones I have at the moment aren't quite up to the job.
Like I said - it's a first effort so don't flame me too hard if I make a balls up
