Default Earl Bob's Team Yo and Shock-A-Billy - any interest?

EDIT If you haven't figured it out already, go to the second page for a detailed list of what Earl has for sale


My friend Earl Walker Jr., AKA Earl Bob, is considering selling his team issued medium Yo! and Shock-A-Billy, serial number Proto#2. Early was a sponsored team rider and both frame have World Cup history. The Yo! was ridden to 46th at the 1992 World Championship Downhill.

The frames can be seen in this thread on mtbr.com

http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=394997

Scroll down about halfway through the first page to apost by ameybrook.

He hasn't come up with prices yet, just gauging interest if any.

Clicky saver...




I may be interested in the Yo. Definitely the helmet, too. Now that my Yo Eddy experiment has completely exploded in the strangest turns of events, I'm back to having just the '85 and no Yo in the stable.

Here is what Earl had to say about the bike when i was e-mailing back and forth with him today:

The Yo...raced 46th in 1992 World Championship downhill, lots of world cup experience. The shock-a-billy is proto#2 serial number and also has world cup experience.. Both come with Ringle seatpost one is proto downhill thick and heavy. the other is standard production. the shock-a-billy has state of the art chain guide systems all handmade. i'll even throw in autographed Ringle catalogs with my picture

So is there an asking price for either? I'd be interested in either, if it were in my wheelhouse.

He isn't sure what to ask yet. I'm not sure he realized there was much interest in Fat frames these days. Maybe he did, but it didn't seem like it when we were e-mailing earlier. Hell, the guy makes custom high end furniture these days for crying out loud.

Anyway, he told me he was thinking about getting rid of them since he has no use for them and I mentioned I would see if any of you guys had an interest in this piece of Fat history. I don't know all the details of how Fat's team worked but from my recollection he was one of a few national sponsored versus regional. He is in a few of the later Fat catalogs. I would want to preserve them as is. That is to say I would ride them but keep them in their current clothes, know what I mean.

I'll check with him later and see what he thinks about price.

I'll let all you all know as soon as I hear back from him. I'm also waiting to hear back from him about another part I'd like to buy from him. Like I wrote, he is kind of feeling this out. If worse comes to worse they wind up on eBay, but I figured it would be nice if he offered them here first.

Earl is going to post here in a little bit, like maybe in the next few days or so. He'll let all of us know then what he is looking to get for his bikes. I will say he is interested is selling these to a collector. And he has tons of other Fat team history stuff as well. Jerseys and letterhead and the like.

So sit tight folks, we'll see what he has to say shortly

Default I won't ride it here in Japan

But it will be ridden! I'll be unloading some campy mtb parts (new in box) and will be eating bologna lunches to cover the frame. But believe me when I say, it will be well taken care of.

Can no longer afford gas for the jet.

Hey Earl
I want the billy (unless you just get a stupid offer in which case take their money and run)
I could probably even pick it up this summer as there is a good chance I will be motoring out that way again.
Thanks
Eli

How to pay: Best to have a PAYPAL account. If you want to send cash that's OK too. Checks? I'll wait for them to clear before I send anything. EURO's Fed-Ex them. We'll need to comunicate on the rate that day.
How to claim DIBS!!!! PM me, First come first serve. and remember money talks and BS walks. So if you call dibs on something pay fast I'll hold it for only so long before I sell it to next in line.
SHIPPING: LOWER 48 STATES. If you get one item you pay. If you get more than one item I'll pay the shipping for you.
If it's got to go someplace else then we gotta talk.
All offers will be considered. The more you buy the better the deal you may strike.
