great Wicked Fat. But something is not right in the pictures. Did you photo-shop away cables and spokes?

But still my winner for the month !
Great job


Thanks!

iPhones new depth function ... does a cool job of excentuating the frame but tends to hide the lesser features up close. Makes the box crown look cool though!

I love it Felix and how about a Yeti calendar? Great idea Jim. There are at least twelve on this forum I can think of! Maybe take this to another thread and talk it up?

Agree. We could perhaps vote on content similar to BOTM and provide a spec sheet and/or description of the bike. That would be pretty cool. I’ll look into seeing what production cost would look like and circle back. The proceeds or a portion should go to RBUK of course.

Haalands 1983 Fat City Cycles «Fat Chance».

Bought this off eBay and fully restored it from scratch. Time to do a build thread I understand.

It’s a bike that is great at the technical parts, at least downhill. Jumps like a flea and is a real pain to push uphill... It’s no surprise as long’s as this one shares a fair deal of the components with contemporary bmx bikes.
