Default 93' Yo Eddy

Hi there.

I actually want to show you my Fat. I bought the frame with a manitou one 1994 from a guy, who did never built it up.
I needed 9 Month, to complete it an drove it without any changes until 1997. Then I "modified" it with a Judy SL Fork an drove it until 2008 as I bought a new Fully.
I realized, that there was rust on the seattube wich I let repair and so the YoEddy got a new colour, too. Original it was metallic teal. The fork was made by the welder, who repaired the frame.
In the beginnig of the 90ies I buildet it up with 900 er XTR parts, Gripshift, HS22 RacelLine and RaceFace. Now I chosed Campy, Syncros and Cooks parts.




It is still really fun to ride it ...

Regards Chris

That's sweet. I love the color.....I'd rather see different tires, but hey, once you ride those they will darken up a bit

Thanks guys!
Hi Jochen and Jan. Nice to see you here, too.

@ yo-Nate-y
I guess I have to keep the tires on cause they are a gift from my wife
But seriously I drive them quite often and they are not getting darker. Good quality unfortunately
