Retro Super Bike: Yeti ARC AS/Lt
Close-up shots of a beautiful restoration project
This ultra-rare super bike is owned by Nick Jones, who’s a personal friend of component pioneer Geoff Ringlé.
He rebuilt frame #003 with a load of period parts and a healthy dose of ano purple as a tribute to the man himself.
Perhaps the most impressive part of the build is the front end, which features a Penske (the famous IndyCar team) upside-down fork and a carbon fibre rotored Grafton cable disc brake. This bike was truly at the cutting edge of mid-90s downhill racing technology.
