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.

These really are so nice to ride and very rare. I guess its a medium size frame ? I would try to avoid selling this as you will most likely regret it. The market is bad, you will only get low balls and it’s far too good for that BS.

Some changes made to the FAT Ti. After deciding against selling it I came across a NOS Igleheart Segmented fork for sale. A friend painted it for me. Also changed the stem, bars & Seat post. Threw some TPU innertubes in the Panaracers too. It rides like a scalded cat! Under 22 pounds in weight.
