1988 Wicked Fat chance - Medium - price drop!


Dirt Disciple
Sadly for sale is my lovely 1988 Wicked Fat Chance.

I've had the bike two years (bought on Retrobike from James/TheRedChili) and it's lived inside the house the whole time (well, wouldn't you?!). It's tragically done less than a handful of rides since and I really can't justify having it as a living room ornament any longer as I need to fund my racing aspirations. Condition is used but solid. All external chips have been sealed and there is no internal rust.

Size is Medium, 17.5" c-c, 18" c-t.

It's currently set up singlespeed, and frankly it's great that way..but of course you can make it less pretty and stick some gears on it if you want!

Asking price is £395.

Can't believe this is still for sale :shock: Wish it was my size. They are legendary for a great handling but comfortable ride due to inspired geometry.
