    Looks like a solid foundation. Rebuild should be fun to see.

    Any signature or markings to indicate who did the paint? It looks pretty involved.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Go back and look for the fork. It will probably be chrome to match the rear end and it will be straight leg, tange dropouts and threaded steerer. Might have fender mounts on the rear of the dropouts as well.

    Crazy paint job on that sucker. Brake levers and calipers are the right ones too!

    The original fork is nowhere to be found...

    The shop guys told me that it had a Rock Shox, but they dump it.

    It does not have the brake levers, only cantis on the back.

    I'll go back to the shop to look for the rest of the parts...

    It has a sticker reading Elemental Jimmy's on the top tube, but I do not believe is related to the paint (?)

    How to remove the BB?

    can I go to a Machining shop and do it or need special something?

    You'll need to remove a circlip on each side where you can see the bearings. Then just give the spindle a few good whacks with a hammer. The spindle and 1 bearing should pop out. Then use a dowel or something similar inserted through the BB shell to knock out the other bearing.

    mine from new ... recently "updated"

    Frame (XEC191022) bought new when I lived in Canada - upgraded locally (Gripsports in Melbourne) 3 years ago:
    frame repainted
    rear triangle rechromed & disc brake mount added
    cable guides rerouted (got rid of that pesky front derailleur pulley)
    original Yeti fork repainted, disc brake mount added
    bottom bracket thread glued in to accept "modern" cranks
    new decals based on original designs

    Still rides like a dream! (pic available on request:vertles52 @ bigpond.com)
