I really was blown away at how nice it rode. previous FATs I have owned have been past favourites, but this is really something. It was that good I thought, Right, sell the Hei Hei, not needed anymore- this is my first out of the door rider for sure!
Can't wait to head out on these lovely spring evenings on it now.

Absolutely stunning... :shock:
I think the original spec/colour scheme made it pretty special back in its day, and you've done right in respecting that. Definitely the nicest 80's Fat I've ever seen. - A real keeper that deserves to be ridden hard as well as coveted.
