Very nice, love the build. Only thing I'd maybe change is the brake levers, they look a little too chi-chi compared with the rest. But still, its superb.

What a Bike , This is for sure one of the best builds I have seem. Loving the colours and components.

Are there any pics of the bike before restoration ?

Don't know why but DX always suits Steel Yetis better than XT, think it was 'cos most of the guys who bought them were hard riders not show-boaters and XT was just too tarty to replace regularly. A perfect build (although a Syncros Hardcore or IRD post would just top that a treat, as would a set of old BLT lights for night riding - really make it into an Evolution catalogue bike!).
