Here are some pics. There are some NOS parts (neon yellow Specialized straps, tires) some new parts (the fork, WTB replica hanger, Ourys, cables/housing, and tubes) and then a good amount of well-worn survivors (and some pretty clean ones!). I'm quite pleased with how it came out, and have certainly enjoyed cruising around town today.

Another Fat creation!

I've had this mech since new on my 1991 Yo Eddy. Carmichael ti pulleys, and lots of wear. The springs are still nice and tight(ish).

A couple to show the metallic luster in direct sunlight :)

Looking forward to taking 'er out on the trails!

Love how Fat's silver metallic paint cleans up real nice 8)
Good looking functional Fat.

btw, that U-Lock would fall off the mere glance of one of our bike thieves.

Thanks guys.

I hear that on the lock-- even in New Haven my policy is to only lock up a bike where I can see it. Haven't lost one yet...knock on wood.
