Having always wanted to ride a Yeti I never thought I’d actually own one and maybe this has caused me to be a little in awe of my own project / the job in hand.
I’ve had this frame for some time now, okay almost eighteen months
I’ve delayed starting my build until I had the majority of the parts needed as I want to do it right, that said I’ve flirted with three different themes…. And the bar has been set so high recently by Silverfish and mkozaczek that if mine comes out even ½ as good as theirs I’ll be made up, but I’d dearly love my build to be able to sit comfortably side by side with them.
From the outset I’ve always had a picture in my mind of what I wanted to achieve, a Grey ARC similar to the one ridden by Ranjeet Grewel, being Grey and Tourquise its not flash nor could it be considered trick, I want a finished project to ride as it would kill me if after all this time I created a piece of wall art.
Ranjeets bike is my starting point / inspiration but I'm not looking to build a replica, Although I've a far greater knowledge now than I've ever had about Yeti's I've still a long way to go (so go easy guys)
Having used Argos for a number of previous projects and being no stranger to their paint shop I’ve seen firsthand what Mark and Gary can do, and therefore it was always going to be paint and not powder coat.
