In the grand scheme of things can you put in some sort of rarest-at-the-top hierarchy, the following Fat Chances actually in the UK...

Shockabillys
Ti's
Buckshavers
Teams
Monster Fats

If you don't actually know, then can you base it on what you have actually seen on these shores by putting the number of each in brackets (3)...

Trying to settle a small debate here!

:wink:

Actually thats a real difficult question. I cant even begin to think - this forum I guess is a good indication - how many Bucks have appeared on here or Monsters for that matter?

Spikes,

I'll throw one on that's more rare than the Ti road...how about a Billy with an Action Tech Big one inch fork.

Only one made and belongs to Rick...located at the First Flight Museum.

For the most part, calling Fat's rare is a fairly unaccurate statement, location not withstanding. These things are production bikes and numbered in the thousands.

Still, quite a cult following, eh?

cheers,

rody
