This is rado's bike so all credit goes to him for the build, all I have done is put some lighter tyres on and a comfy and modern saddle on it. Have to say it is the best handling bike i have ever ridden, not cut out for the really bumpy stuff but just grin inducing stuff, struggling to take out any other bike these days.

Know what you mean, mind you i had a 86 fat and it was just a tad to slack jawed at the front, this wicked seems to be a real sweet geo set up.

That's a nice looking fat. Have had a Wicked myself and can agree with the ride-ability of the Wicked.
