I have a 17.5" Ultimate frame bought from Evolution Imports in Bromley around 1993 but I believe this was originally used by the UK race team. Was orange and grey when I bought it, re-sprayed powder coated white last year by Chas Roberts. Frame # looks like U164
Got two Ultimates; Can´t find a serial# on the school bus yellow one, but as I own the original receipt it´s a `89 from Malibu, CA. The other one, glossy black, has U357 stamped on the BB-shell. Is anybody able to name the year it´s been built on this info?
Thank you for any other informative site. Where else could I get that type of info written in such ann ideal way? I've a mission tat I am just now working on, and I've been at the loopk out for such info.
Have one (U844) I'm rebuilding to more original than when I got it. Seat post was stuck and took 2 months to get out using penetrating oil and no force. It is original white and has a Halson fork but I did track down a take off black Accu Trax but the steer tube is 7.5" long, I need 6" to 6.5" and do not want to cut the fork, holding out I find one that someone is willing to trade. Mostly M73X parts on the bike but have a nice Cooks crankset in black I'm thinking of stealing off a Kona it's on now. Where would the serial number put my frame year? I'm thinking 91-92. Mine is in California, SF area.
I have an 17.5" Ultimate I purchased from someone in Canada as a full bike in 2002. I stripped down to the bare frame to restore at some point. The bike is Yellow now and the SN is U1775. I would consider a trade for a 1990 FRO in 17.5" as that was my first Yeti.
