Yokota Yosemite Comp

I found this bike in the garbage, some parts are broken but it seem like a good high end bicycle, anyone know if it's worth fixing? I kinda rather old bikes, I have a rockymountain, it sucks, it broke easy, the bottom bracket is dead and both disc break's fluid went away.

I used to sell Yokotas back in the early 90's. Great value, rode quite well for the time. It might be a bit flexy, but other than that it should take modern parts if you need to make repairs.

It should take a modern BB/crank. I don't know if I would bother with a suspension fork for it. Rigid SS maybe?

Hi, I have an old Yokota El Capitan in my garage (way to small for me, Rapidfire shifters, mainly DX group), but also have access to an old Granite Peak. Is the Granite Peak essentially the same quality as the El Capitab, but with lower quality components?

HI, sorry for my tardiness but my notifications had been turned "off". Yes the old El Capitan must have been from the late 1980's or early 1990's. It had pink lettering and the infamous "smoke" finish over white. The fork on it could pass as a suspension fork: a very robust triple clamp, and large diameter tube legs and Spinner drop-outs. There are no manufacturer's marks on it. I may just steal the components and wheels for a different bike. A shame really because it is such a nice little bike.
