Default Mint 1993 Yo in S/M

Hey..here she is...


A friend of mine had two Yo's back in the early 90's. One was sold, the other one got the famous rust hole in the seat tube. I bought the frame + fork from him, and it has just been fixed by Chris Igleheart. I will post pics of the bike when I get it. Now it's time to get down to business about this store.

My friend calls me one day and says that a colleague of him has a Yo Eddy. She got it from her boyfriend in 1993 and she was considering to get rid of it. He had been "out of the game" for a long time and asked me what it was worth. Anyway, he ended up buying it ridiculous cheap. After trying to talk him into selling it I finally made it on Saturday, however paying more than twice the prie he paid.

Take a look at it, it looks great. The first owner claimed to have no more than maximum 20 rides on it, whatever you see that might look like dents or anything similar is only the dirt it has gathered throughout the years. I even enclosed a picture of the chain and cassette, it has never been cleaned so it is pretty obvious how little this bike has been ridden. Also, look at the drive side chain stay, not even one sign of chain suck or the chain falling off.

Enjoy!

I'll check it during the evening. At the moment it looks like this will be passed on to my wife. I've been looking for a Yo Betty for her, but those a hard to come by so looks like it'll be a Yo instead

I have another s/m coming in. This is the one that has just gotten the seat tube repaired. It is currently in paint, and will be painted in the same color as my car, BMW's Sydney Blue. However, that frame has cost me enormous sums now so if I sell it it'll be expensive.
