I have been restoring my Yeti Ultimate that I have owned since '92 or 93'. I am the second owner and bought it from the owner of a bike shop I worked at after it was stolen then recovered.
I powder coated it Turquoise and got the decals from Velo-Cals. All the pictures I see have the decals in different spots. Does anyone have an old ad or brochure that shows how Yeti put the decals on? Trying to get it as close as original as possible.
I just registered so I can add photos. Here is my Ultimate how it sits today. I raced this bike in the early 90's until I started racing for Action-Tec and built up that bike. My dad started riding and racing the Ultimate and we replaced the Manitou with an Action-Tec Pro Shock. My dad passed away in 2007 and I had the bike sitting for a few years after that until I decided to rebuild/restore it. I bought some early 90's parts to get it close to the way I had it in the early 90's, an original Manitou 1, Grafton cranks, Chris King hubs, Mavic rims, A-Tac stem, Shimano XT thumb shifters and a Flite titanium seat.
My dad replaced the Grafton Speed Controller brakes with V brakes so I used a set of Grafton Mag-Lites that I had from my Action-Tec bike. Luckily I just spoke with John Grafton and he is sending me some shims that I have been trying to find for the brakes. He said those Mag-Lites are really rare which was cool to hear. The bike still had the Phil Wood bottom bracket that I originally built it with and Answer Hyperlite bars.
