New addition to the build.

Bought from another member here on RB, fully serviced with new elastomers and bolts.
The steerer tube is spot on in length, i just hope there is enough thread, but if not im sure there is help out there with sorting this out.

Getting close now..

Because this will be having the manitou's, i didnt want to fit a stem that had the noodle.

This syncros stem was bought here on RB, and i think is perfect for what i want.

Update :

Because i am finding it impossible to find a red ringle seat skewer, the red ano wheel skewers will be going on another bike that does'nt require the seat skewer.
Instead ive been lucky to find a pair of used 'critical racing' skewers in silver, they came off ebay, fitted to a pair of campag wheels, they where battered & bruised, but after a bit of sanding and a good ammount of autosol, they have come out ok.., these go very nicely with the campag icarus canties, and go well with yeti's of this age, being one of the sponsors back in the day..

Update :

I had a bit of a panic the other day, although i had owned a set of manitou 1's some years ago, i had completely forgot they required a shim to fit onto the steerer tube for the fitment of the lower head set race..
I only discovered this when i came to trial fit them to the frame :facepalm:

After a bit of searching i could only find the shims in 1" or 1.1/8"....
Any way, i decided to email some one who made the mentioned sizes....., brilliant news, they where able to custom make one in 1.1/4" and anodize black for me at a very good price,

PS, ive posted a thread relating to these shims in the 'chat' section.. . A reply on that section informed me of a company called 'rampage' that also make them..

Trial fitment of shim proved perfect....

PPS. plus you can tell these forks didnt come of a yeti, buy the wear on the crown.. wish i could sort it.

update on this build..

Although this bike has been put to one side , it will still be restored one day, but not using most of the parts mentioned earlier in this thread.
I will be using a few more bits from campagnolo, and no bright colours will be used, just keeping it simple, ' black & silver '

I think i need to replace the decals sooner.
