First of all, I'm hoping someone can help with identifying details that can verify if this frame was indeed a factory bike provided to Missy by Yeti. The story I was given when I acquired the bike last year is that this was Missy's last team-issue bike, which was never raced as she left for Cannondale before the 1994 race season. Missy gave the bike to a local friend in Durango, who rode it for the next several years while updating most of the components. My plan is to return it to factory specs, if I can somehow come across the necessary vintage components. Any input on the correct parts and/or where to get them would be appreciated! Currently I think I at least need the following:
-Turquoise Ringle stem, seatpost, hubs, bottle cage, and seatpost skewer
-Turquoise Grafton crankset (?)
-Turquoise Chris King headset (?)
-Manitou 3 or Judy fork?
It currently has XTR V brakes and front derailleur; SRAM 9.0 rear derailleur, grip shifters, and brake levers; and Panaracer Fire XC Tires. Not sure if any of this is period correct or not.'
Thanks in advance for any input!
