I picked this Buckshaver up last night, following an ace tip-off here.... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=205896
It was a 2 hour round trip in the end, but well worth it for a free Fat!!
It's far too small for me though, which is a shame, but I'm going to see how it fits my Girlfriend.
If it's no good for us, then it'll be getting sold on for charity.
Here's a quick pic that I took when I got her home last night. More to follow over the weekend...

Nice stem :lol:

Here's the dilema... I recently built a bike for my girlfriend, a 2001 853 framed Rock Lobster...

Image

It's really too big for her (although she does ride it ok) but it fits me a treat.
If I rape the Lobster for parts to build the Fat up, then she get's a nice bike that fits her properly, but I lose the use of the Lobster :?
In an ideal world I'd keep the 853 frame for me and she'd get the Fat. I'm a bit tight for storage though!

confucious he say..when a woman shares your passion..she rarely checks your bank account.

Build the girly a new fat with the parts from the lobster..if she doesn't like it you can always build the lobster back up. Brownie points go a long way my friend.
