Default Lime Green Yo Eddy

I was curious what one of these would go for?

Ive had it for close to 10 years originally built for a replacement

Here are a couple of attached images. Still has the original decals plus some random sickers.

No the poster isnt for sale

Default Yo eddy

Does it have a rigid fork? Or painted to match Rock Shox? How about size?

Sorry. I did post the link above but it doesnt like the word ship(t) in the domain name.

Anyways here is another link. Ive included a snapshot of the serial number. I also have replacement bearings for the bottom bracket that come directly from the company that made them for team chance so there is a little bit of oxidation but it can be cleaned up..

And no the white bike isnt for sale

Ridden hard and put away wet, eh? Peel off the crappy stickers, give her a good cleaning and you could maybe fetch a bit of cheese for it. As is I'll give you $100.
Grello fade ("lime green") rocks!!
Good luck with this one!

Sorry if that sounded rude. However, I think if you do some searching on here and ebay completed listings you will find that the YO's that go for a good sum are clean, well documented and well photographed. If someone that didn't know what it is saw your bike, you'd be lucky to get the $100 I offer. By the way I own ser# 006z07, '90 Yo! Medium, Grello fade in excellent shape and traded a Mark Nobillette for it that I paid $100 for, so I'm not that far off base.
Clean your bike, take some decent pictures and post it up if you want to get more than an insulting offer.
PS how is the seat tube? (search)
btw cool headset


Not trying to be a D***, just saying...

Thanks for the update. I have to admit i was put off on your first reply but your second reply reaffirmed you weren't a troll.

Honestly thou. i spent a little money on the parts nothing major and i managed to find replacements for the bottom bracket by calling independent cycles. Someone i spoke with there used to work at Fat City

Its been sitting in my garage collecting dust/rust since ive moved onto motorcycles.
But If i invest any more money in the bike im better off keeping it (im not going to sell it for 100 bucks..). I know what the bike is worth mainly since i bought the frame and fork as a replacement bike i was going to use bike messaging. I had friends who messaged on fat city frames and swear by them.. (but i quit before i could use it)..

What did you mean "how is the seat tube" ? You mean check inside the tube for rust?

Yeah pull the post and dump the frame upside down. all the tubes are sealed but water and moisture can collect in the seat tube.

$1500 might be a bit of a reach, though.

Seat tube (inside) condition will be the make or break indicator for your frame. Definitely don't see many z Yo's.

Is there some sort of reasoning in the serial numbers? Just curious because of your comment.

Honestly, in the condition it sits in those photos, it's probably a good starting point on the price—and even then, they will need to be spec'd with XTR and the rarest of components to warrant a price tag like that. Only the cleanest, freshest examples of Yo Eddy complete bikes will fetch anything even close to $1500. The coveted 10th Anniversary bikes, which were very limited production, are in the range of $1700-2000 on a good day, and that is for pristine examples.

I just picked up a stellar similar-era Wicked this fall in a very rare color combo, for right around $500, and all things considered, it's in much finer condition than your Grello Yo. I don't think he was being sarcastic in the least with that offer.

As someone previously wrote here, clean that frame up a lot, remove the extra decals, take much better photos of it, and you might have a shot at getting more cash out of it should you decide to sell. But in a market like we are seeing right now, only the cleanest bikes are going to get top dollar, and even then...


Good luck with the sale, but you need to be realistic with what you expect to get out of it.

If it is the stuff in the pic, I doubt anyone who wants the frame will really want the parts. Selling separate will be better for all involved I think.

For an example of a similar Yo check ebay. That thing has been there for month after month. He started at $1500 and now is at $999 OBO and still no bites at all. You both have the original fork, which is a huge bonus, but if you want to sell it you've got some good advice in this thread.
