Nice 'Roon. I'm sure you'll do it good.

Not to steal this thread from you, but the new employee at the LBS pulled up on '90 Wicked the other day fitted with an extracycle. It is haggard. Decals are flaking off in the breeze, rust, horrid parts spec...perfect for a restore. I've been thinking of offering him some $ for it, so today I got it in me to go ask, and he wasn't there. The guy at the counter said, "oh yeah, he wheels and deals all the time, make him an offer."

Never fancied myself a Fat owner as they were the main bike of the rival LBS shop back home, but after this weekend, I may own a Wicked.

Excited.

Any pics 'Roon?

My deal fell through, apparently the guy's dad gave it to him and he doesn't want to part wit it. Understandable. I'm bummed, but its ok.. Need another project!

Are those Cook Bros that recently ended for your new bike Kingroon?

I had a wee bid but couldn't justify going any higher.
