Default 1991 Yo Eddy,Team Fat Chance

I Feel somewhat guilty for not putting up a build thread for my Yo, so here it is , a 1991 Yo Eddy in Aquamarine fade.The frame has been fully restored by Rody,who has done an amazing job I'm sure your agree.

His blog on this frame here :

http://groovycycleworks.blogspot.com...ogression.html

It has taken six months so far to get where I currently am, the only major part to source is a pair of Grafton re-entry levers in blue (preferred )or black-so let me know if you have some spare

The path of the build is currently :

Grafton Brakes
Ringl

I have a set of blue profile chain rings that would look sweet on that. I think it is a 48 and a 36.

Thanks for the offer, but think i'm going silver with the rings, though if you have any Blue Grafton re-entry levers, I'm listening

Is that the original fork or did Rody build you one?

How long from start to finish? He's pretty busy these days!

The fork was actually started by Igleheart and finished by Rody ,so quite rare guess !!

I brought the forks with the Frame, so couldn't tell you current lead-times @ Groovy,though some bars I recently had made took almost three months !

Cool. Did Rody add the stress tabs to the back of the Igle fork? My fork from Chris doesn't have then, and I didn't see them on most of the segmented forks in his gallery.

The restoration link is awesome. So cool to see Rody's work in progression, and what the frame initially looked like! Yikes - what a beater!!
