Hey everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster here. I picked up a Durango-made Yeti frame recently and I'm just trying to figure out what exactly I have. It looks like a 1998 or so Lawwill DH-6, with a few exceptions. Most noticeable are the two-piece swingarm, the connection between the rear chainstays and the swingarms, and the front piece of the chainstays. Everything looks more beefy than usual. The connecting piece is much more significant than the black ones I see in all the pictures, and looks like its setup to take a 15mm through-axle.
This particular frame I was told was raced by Jurgen Beneke. You can still see where the Beneke name stickers were on both sides of the top tubes. All the decals have been removed but I can also see the swingarms used to have giant "SHIMANO" decals on both sides, and I think the downtube had the old "EASTON" logos, as well as Yeti logos. So, what model is this exactly? Is it a Lawwill that's been built up for racing? Something custom? Or just something I haven't been able to find yet? I've included several pictures to hopefully help identify.
Any help you could give me would be great. Thanks in advance!!
EDIT: Posted this in Bike and Frame discussion first. Was told it might be better to post it in the Yeti forum. I know I'm a noob to this forum so feel free to give me crap for posting this with a super low post count.
