I've been looking for one of these for an age, seeing all the recent Yeti threads really got my attention and fired my love of these bikes.

Had a sell up a few years ago and sold all but my original ARC, regretted selling my FRO that I never finished and was always on the look out for an Ultimate. This arrived this morning, very nicely wrapped....in fact took me ages to get into it! But what a lovely frame was hiding inside...got some decals to go on and a fork/stem at the powdercoaters as we speak so should be too long before shes a runner.

Teaser shot..........

Although i like the colour contrast what are you laying that frame on? If it was my crappy Astra it wouldn't be a problem but that motor looks a lot nicer.

Nice frame though, thats going to be a great bike. I love the e-stays!

Awesome. I really want one. I don't think they made anything bigger than a 20" frame. :(
