I picked this up from Fleabay. It's in need of some TLC. but it's in reasonable overall condition.

The Manitou's need rebuilding, and a respray is in order.

The guy I bought it from dropped it off today. He'd also dug out the original A-Tac and threw that in to the deal along with a load of Yeti stickers / Tattooes...though sadly none of the frame decals in there.

The syncros stem is immaculate - basically nos, as are the Z-Maxs which is a bonus :D

I already have the build worked out...now to get the bits.

Nice one - very similar to mine. Paintwork looks okay to me - old FRO's need a few scuffs IMO. Could use a new headbadge though.

That was first seen on an ARC wasn't it?

Some yeti paint jobs that I recall and considering:

Obviously Blue with yellow Accutrax & Atac
Grey frame with pink Accutrax & Atac

I hadn't realised / had forgotten how ovalised the top tube is on these
