I aquired this Fat late last year from my good friend in Amsterdam. I have made a few changes- swapped out the heavy Tange fork for a NOS Yo Eddy that turned up on eBay last month and changed the bars to a slightly wider Titec which came also from the Netherlands (cheers Roy!). I have just painted the forks and need to find some bosses so I can mount the brakes and I can take it for a ride at last. Finally, last on the list are the cranks. Idealy I would like some Syncros Revolutions or black Graftons.

Hope you like it guys. I will try and get some better pictures over the weekend if it warms up a little.
