Picked this up last year. It had been sat unused for many years. But the build on it is pretty much how I would have done it. I may get a segmented fork built for it and colour matched to the Ti/ red scheme.
I’ve fitted a new White Industries bottom bracket, new old stock tyres and a few other parts like the brake pads. It also now as a 120mm stem with rise.
Rides extremely well. Definitely one of my unicorns! And the externally machined tubes are superb.

If you can find one fit a Morati Ti fork to it, the ride can only be described as incredible. Works perfectly with the geometry too. I have pretty much all Ti on mine, Moots Ti risers, Ti stem & a Salsa Ti seatpost. It weighs 20lb in m/l and has plenty of natural shock adsorption over rough ground.

Yes this sounds like a plan. However my friend made me these for my retro-mod Yo and love them. Thought about get some more made and painting them Ti colour and fading some red up the legs.

I keep saying it, your retromod Yo is a game changer build.I always find it amusing when you see the latest hipster street bikes, fitted with FCC original design segmented forks.I have a few BOI originals and love them 😎 They are works of art and keepers for sure.
