Nice frame Marcus, love these old Yeti's they have real presence and character. I was wondering what you had coming after seeing your wanted threads for 1 1/4" stuff.

Well Steve,I've been hanging onto those NOS black HO brakes that you sold me for something special.... Otherwise I'm thinking Deore XTll and maybe some Cook Bros RSRs that I've had since new. Mainly black components.
And Sinnetti,I'm going to try to do a proper build on this,something that might come close to the quality of build that you do!

Sounds like it's gonna be a lovely looking bike. Slow build over the Winter and Spring to ride over Summer?
