I know the buyer, he's an honest dude...he'll pay.

Can't believe the prices people will pay for memories...Fat stuff was good but paled in comparison in fabrication to other's work of the era. :roll:

cheers,

rody

I think the buyer has in mind building a 'little' Fat museum. If I remember correctly he also bought the beautifull Chris Chance pista bike not long ago ...and he bought way more pristine Fat stuff.

Hey Alan,

I know him through email communications as he has been a winning bidder previously on many items...seems a really good guy who, like many of us, enjoys collecting retro items of his youth now that he has the means.

I do know that he has some "riders" as well as some "museum" pieces.

cheers,

rody
