Default Finally Got my 1990 Yo Eddy Completed

This is a 1990 Yo Eddy Size Medium with Fresh Powder Coat & New set of decals (thanks to Gil & CycleshedUK). The parts are mostly 1996 Deore XTR & XT including V-brakes. The front shock is a Rockshox Judy XC with Englund Total Air Cartridge Conversion. The bike rides great!






Here are a few Before (& during) pictures:

beautiful. really well done. i lived in san anselmo from `05-`11. i'm surprised that we never crossed paths at tamarancho or gold hill. i actually met chris chance at tamarancho last summer when he approached me about my yo.

did you have trouble finding brake studs to fit the brake bosses when converting to v-brakes? i'm on the verge of giving up and having new bosses re-brazed. seeing how nicely your new paint looks has really got me thinking.

You could paint a salsa stem to match. A 130 stem.
