I'm not sure when they switched over on Yo's, but the first "Yo Eddy" forks used larger 1-1/8" blades, which were quite stout.

Somewhere along the line the Yo legs shrunk to 1". 10th Anniv. was the first appearance of the 1" blades in 1992 - the Yo's maybe went to 1" a few years after (between 93 and 94 according to MOMBAT).

Anyway, your fork looks very nice. I'm impressed with how he did the scallops at the bottom and those dropouts are neat. You going to paint it pink? That's be my vote.

sorry my mistake! the legs are of course 1 1/8" (like YO fork). Only the BOI forks have the 1" legs.

And I would prefer it in grellow colour (#7-0260)

To get exactly the same grello colour, a white primer is used.
(but in white it looks also very good )

So the painting is complete. I think we have produced exactly the same colour, probably
there is very little difference to frame colour but should not be visible.

Tomorrow will be still clear varnished.




in low light





and with more light

here it's, my Yo Eddy fork (made by gebla.de) in grello.











I'm very satisfied
Now I have to beat only the baseplate of CK on it, hope nothing goes wrong.

yes I also think I bring it tomorrow to the shop.

I don't care about the painting (cause I know now which colour) but I could quite hurt when I hit it with a hammer.

I hate such a new thing, you're afraid to touch it!!

Didn't think it was possible but this bike got better and better as the thread moved along. Very nice job, the fork looks great.

I've changed a few things. The crank isn't now all black and the tit Onza pedals have been added.

I thought the procs are the most beautiful tires but these original and nos panaracer smoke & dart match properly! They look damn rustic
(thanks mate, that you've left me this wonderful tires)





now missing only the black ODI grips.

What do you think?

love the smoke dart combo to look at, but i really don't like how noisy they are on pavement and hard pack. Wished I could find a nice looking compromise. Your bike is so so nice. Great job start to finish.

But these tires are really soft, although 20 years old!

I look forward to all your updates of this bike but at the same time deep down there is jealousy. Beautiful bike.

Due to many demands about the color code of grello!

This information I got from my painter:

There are two colors, which are the same as grello:

Lawngreen RGB:124,252,0 (--> 90% identical to grello)
Greenyellow RGB:173,255,47 (--> this is exactly the grello)

but both are not for sale as finished, so you must mix them.

Please note the following rules:

Limegreen (RAL 6018) + 0.3% Neonyello on white background = Grello (only Neonyello caused the grello effects)
