I've been talking to the seller all day.

It might be on the way to the Chicago suburbs.

Yeah, except I found this one yesterday morning on a CraigsList hunt. If you charge a fee, can I blame you for the last one from Alaska?



Found something else, too, while I was at it...

Nope, it's a golden "curry" color, and in desperate need of a repaint.

There was a large amount of unfinished inventory that was transferred from Somerville to New York after the business sale was completed.
It is very possible that several Yo Eddy frames (maybe as many as 100) were tacked or welded or finished but not painted in Somerville and then went to New York where they were painted and sold. The same would be true of Wickeds, Slims, Bucks and maybe a handful of Shock-a-billys, and possibly a couple of Ti frames that were in progress when the doors closed.
I don't know if they put both decals on any frames that were started in Somerville and then finished and sold from New York. Needless to say, I didn't really have much interest in what they did after Somerville closed.

That's the one. There is no rust on it anywhere (he sent me better photos not taken with a cell phone). It was a rattle can job he did on a primer, which is why it's all chipped. The decals are post-factory replacements.

We'll see if he comes through. It's pretty cheap and need of a new home.
