Default Long awaited first Fat

After a few months of looking for just the right Yo Eddy, I've finally bought one. I wanted a Yo Eddy from 92-95, fade paint job, rigid fork and in size large. I found a few very nice frames that fit everything but they were way out of my price range.

The one I ended up buying is, I think, a 1995 with a Sapphire Fade paint job. The fork was a Fat Chance factory made piece but I'm not sure exactly what model it is. It was originally yellow and repainted white to go better with the frame. It's not a build the purists will love but it will be a blast of a rider that I'll love. I'm not sure if I want to go 3x8 M950 XTR or a new 1x11 M8000 XT group.

I'm expecting delivery at the end of the week so more pics then!

Can anyone help me date my bike, I'm 99% sure it's a 1995 model but would like to know for certain.

Here's the last 1% you need to confirm it's a '95:

Here it is all finished up. Modern build on a retro ride but I'm digging it. I'm waiting on a "Cherry Lemonade Fade" Yo Eddy 2.1 I ordered that'll be running the same group.

The 95 has Mavic 517 hoops laced to King hubs, XTR brakes, Thomson post & king headset, XT M730 pedals and a 1x11 XT M8000 group.

Unfortunately I was only able to get a couple pics to upload (I'm not techy...!) but you get the point
