For quite a while I was searching for something else then a Klein.
After the dissapointment of the DEAN I never thought I could ride a bike wich isnt made of Aluminium.
But end of last year Santa came around and found me this one. Allmost full original and in a pretty
nice shape with allmost all original components.
Last week it came in, had to be cleaned (seems like it had been catching dust for ages), mounted a
new drivetrain (cassette was still in pretty good shape) and something to sit on the maidentrip was today.

For the finish of this Wicked I am only looking for a nice Turbo seat and some Skinwall tires.
These one or the Specialized Hardrock, will still do but could use some retirement.

Cheers,
Martin

Its already looking much happier than the pics on evil bay! Looks like you may be just a tad taller than me but good to see another wicked doing the rounds. Spread the word and the word is wicked.

That is a great find! Beautiful.

I have a NOS 'Super Turbo' saddle if you are interested. Date stamp is 1985. It's a bit more rare and special than a regular Turbo... more fitting for a 'FAT' I think

It is advertised at £65 for it but if you want it you can have it for £60

Cheers,

Chaser

I thought I saw it on there and wanted it. But, after the Funk...

Just a wonderful example of Fat Chance when they were hitting hard, man. :twisted:

I like it with the 24 rear and u-brake...

Thanks for all the sweet words.

Yes this is the one from ebay a couple of weeks back, needed a very good clean and some parts to complete.

Thanks for the Turbo offers but just looking for a nicely used plain black one.
