I meant to get pics of this up a while ago but this rad bike was for sale recently on CL Portland, OR. I think the owner did a great job mixing original and modern parts on what looks like a ripping machine and nice pics to boot.  I had never seen such an early Yokota model and would hazard a guess that it's a '84. I also was stoked to see the Tange stamped fork crown as I have a long running interest in who was making 80's mtb cast fork crowns. Other interesting details are mid fork braze-ons, a burly clamping stem, and a strange/neat seat stay termination at the seat cluster. Thanks Estanislado for letting me post these pics!

  1. Very nice.

    Looks like very generous tyre clearances for the time, too.
