Picked up my Yo from the customs today - and still couldnt believe it! The seller has posted it the 6th January!

Much work to do with it (custom powdercoat job - so I dont know if to leave or to strip and paintjobbie - its a stunnin dark purple, but on some places like the dropouts and the BB area powdercoat is split of and thats not fine)
