fat66,

If you send me the frames where you can't quite read or find the serial numbers, I may be able to locate them for them you Perhaps the ones without #'s were custom, it looks like you have the first Medium Buck Shaver based on the serial #, no?

Sounds like a great collection can't wait to see the photos!

Post pictures soon

I'll try and get the photos of the Buck, Yo and Spumoni/Harlequin bikes up Tuesday. I think the Buck might be the first Medium indeed, it's a Serotta built rig, not sure though, many out there must know more details on serial #'s, little help? I don't think the Spumoni has a serial #, but I did not get the chance to look

My memory may be kind of hazy, but the Buck was introduced in 94 while Fat was still in Somerville. Fat didn't move to NY until late 94 or early 95. If your Buck is a Glen Falls bike then there is no way it is the first medium Buck. I think Medium and Small were probably the sizes they sold the most of.

Post buck shaver in AZ

Maybe this Buck was the first made by Serotta? I don't have much of an idea on the history of this bike, I'm not the original owner.

Post one more Yo from Fat66

I forgot to list my other Yo Eddy, serial # 619Y2M, later 92 with a threaded BB. It's been rode hard and put away wet countless times, all over the SW and Mexico. It belonged to one of my best friends, Steve Garro of Team Mutant fame in Flagpole AZ,,,,,,,,he's building beautiful filet brazed frames the last 4+ years under the Coconino Cycles banner, www.coconinocycles.com. I rebuilt this Yo last Fall with the original Yo fork and custom Stainless horizontal rear facing dropouts courtesy of our buddy Wade @ Vulture Cycles in Orygun,,,,,single speed wheelset and old skool WTB dirt drops,,,,,rides real nice still, 15 years later.Pictures to come if anyone is interested
