1988 YETI F.R.O. "TIGER"

Story of the bike

This is an all original Yeti FRO from 1988 in an unique "Tiger" paint scheme.

 

Serial # 648

 

I assume it's from 1988.

 

It's not clear yet who painted it.

Rumors went from John Slawta (Landshark) over Girard to artist Esteban Bojorquez. None of them could be confirmed. Girards paint jobs were different and he didn't paint many. John Parker thought it might have been Esteban Bojorquez, so I showed him the photos, but he said that this wasn't his work or painting technique. 

 

Also no info about the "Wheel Precision" stickers yet.

 

Total restoration, replaced saddle, front brake housing, shift cables, front wheel, rear hub, tires, skewers, brake lever hoods, bottle cages and added pedals.

 

John Parker :

HE ALSO DID A EARLY YETI BLACK ON WHITE ZEBRA YETI WITH WTB CAM BRAKES THAT TINKER JUAREZ RACED ON THE FEW TIMES HE RACED FOR YETI BEFORE HE WENT OVER TO GENERAL BICYCLES...
