Thank you all for the positive responds on my post. I will try to answer your questions and of course keep posting photos of the building process. Mrkawasaki- I got an unused pulley wheel from my -92 Yeti ARC if you are interested. I don’t know the brand of the stem, HB or the post, but if you look close at the pictures in the early Merlin catalogs you’ll see these items on the complete bikes. Can they be Merlin home brand? The forks are Tange CroMo. They were burgundy metallic painted, just had to repaint it in satin Ti grey with a lite metallic effect. Please forgive me
WorldRanger- I was always the silver/Ti grey fan, very hard to beat in the evening light, stunning contrast between two beautiful metals. And black wears out thru the years, my very well used -94 still looks stunning. Someday
I’ll rebuild it with all the original parts and post some pics. The tires are Zmax 1.9”
If anyone knows where to get the black decals, please let me know. I curse myself for wasting a set of NOS decals on the wrong bike, the -94 sure needs a new set. But I kind of like the abused look.
