This definitely was not something I thought I'd have a chance at owning. We see lots of Brodies, Rocky Mtns, etc. up in Canada obviously but I would consider this rarer than a Stanley Cup in Toronto. I've seen two including this one in the steel.

Don't think this will last long on guesses :D

That didn't take long.

1993 Yo Eddy with Yo Eddy fork (I don't think it's the BOI fork, but I am new to Fats). Size Medium. 18" and 22.25" tt.

No cracks, dents, or damage. Paint is original black and has patina. Debating on a repaint ... There is a bit of spider webbing so it might be sensible to clean it up. If I do, it will stay black.

This one sort of fell in my lap for a more than fair price. Never thought I'd get a chance to own one.

I'm planning on a full XTR build with a few tricks. Nothing flashy. Black and XTR grey is the scheme. An excellent group also came my way around the same time the frame so perhaps it's fate.

It'll be a rider :)

Very Nice! Def a 1" XTR M900 headset would be the way to go :wink:

I hear those xtr 1" headsets are cheap.

I have a couple syncros 1" stems. Not noodle, but mint. Probably one of those.

how's the front end height on that one? do you need raise on your stem?

.

You could always go Ritchey? I have a spare one pictured below (all are 1")...

The other three would have to be pried out of my cold dead hands :wink:

I have one of those ritcheys to. I figure I'll worry about tht last. I've never ridden a Yo Eddy so I'm not sure on the fit.

I tried Malcolms, you will probably want some raise... my guess for you is about 10degree raise, 140 length...

sweet...

Very cool frame set .

I dont have many regrets, But my biggest regret to date, was selling my harlequin yo eddy back in 94 :facepalm:

A guy i worked with had a black one back in the day....., was a beautiful bike..

All the yo eddy's i ever built up for customers had ringle equipment, especially when it came to the stems.
The black yo edds look very cool with silver ringls parts , and go great with xtr...

So good score on the frame set........., i want one now :D
