Hi guys!

I had this frame and fork for a long time on the wall, and i have recently started to give her some shape. Still needs some parts as you can see.
I think i want to build ths bike more or less period correct without any ringle "bling" and stuff likte that. Have to many "bling" bikes already! :)

Yeti Utimate 16 or 17" frame (original paint and in VERY good condition.
Accu Trax fork, original headset and attack stem that was original with the frame as new.

I have added black hyperlite bars, 7 speed "xt" gripshift with yeti grips, avid levers, xt canti brakes (powdercoated in yeti blue) and xt rear mech.

Have you painted the brakes yourself?

Got to be a Bullseye, in Yellow!, then a whole bunch of XT (those avid levers aren't burly enough - get some XTs!), then you need a turbo saddle, and XT seatpost, a set of IRC FRO tyres and you're there!

Looks a nice original example. I don't like the brake levers. I'd agree with some yellow bullseyes as Pete said....

Get it finished.....

I guess it's f¤##& hard to find some yellow bullseye cranks...?

Black would be nice to, but not white...
