You guys are especially good about these long drawn out build threads.
Normally I wait until the finished product before the unveiling....but since this is a fun one, I'll give it a shot.

With upfront thanks to a lead from Ameybrook, this particular bike was found, quite literally...languishing in the cellar of a home in Oakland, California for close to two decades.
Pictures are of the bike as found.


Is this anything special?

Nice find, that is the most decayed Flite I have ever seen!

Good luck with build.

For a Ultra rare Yeti model I must confess there are 3 threads on the go at the moment,
Albeit that the other two are carbon fibre cut'n'shut ..... But this is the daddy !

Even the saddle is in a league of it's own :lol:

Will be following this one for sure

I know, these things are a dime-a-dozen.

Fine original build on it too.
