Default Mrs LDP's new Yo Eddy

After a few emailed negotiations with the really nice US seller, and a couple of weeks wait owing to shipping and customs etc, finally, my (err, Mrs LDP's) first Fat has arrived. It's a virtually NOS (has signs of being built at some point, but defiantly not ridden) Yo in a size small. The pink purple fade is tremendous but sadly my crappy iPhone doesn't really do the colours justice!

I can't quite make the s/no out, it looks like 738Y2S, but the paint doesn't make it easy. Can anyone confirm if this is a likely s/no or shed any light on year of manufacture or any other details?

Undecided on build yet, other than it will be period faithful. Suggestions welcome.

My best guess is a Somerville-made 1992 small Yo with a regular Yo fork. Nice find! Wish I saw that when I was looking for a bike for my wife last year. Treat her kindly

I saw this bike on eBay. To me it looked like a repaint. It is very pretty though. Glad to see it got a nice home !
