I've had this Yo for about a year now. This was one of those out of reach bikes for me back in 93. I had to make good my promise to myself back then and finally purchase one. I have it set with the perfect mix of anodized parts and M900.

Very nice Yo, Benzosol. I see it is Mass one, but can you unveil what year exactly?

That looks a bit different from the normal Fat's and I like it. Nice use of Ano and fancy bits. :-)

Glad you guys like the YO. It's always good to get some feedback from this forum. The bikes on this site are always stellar. The original owner of this Fat purchased the bike early in 1993 from "IMartin" here in Los Angeles. The bike was made in late 92 from what I know. I have since changed the brakes and crankset and stem. This YO is a great handling bike even by todays standards. I have the original M900 cranks and will put them back if I plan on riding the YO quite a bit. I like the way the Kookas look but find the old ano cranks other than the Bullseye a bit flexy.

Bloody lovely! I really like the frame colour. Great build and yes a little bit different.
