Jeff’s Wicked Fat Chance

DSC04200

This gorgeous little shred sled is a recently (mostly) completed project by my buddy Jeff, who is something of a bike hustling mentor to me. Jeff is a big dude, around the mid 6’s, and this baby is a size 24″ Wicked Fat Chance circa the early 90’s. Although not color matched, fork is original to frameset.

Jeff’s one of those “period correct” dudes, so everything on this bike is both matching and correct to the time of frame production*. If you notice, the toe straps are missing, which is because he hasn’t yet found just the right straps to completely put this build to bed. If you have something that would work that you want to part with, do let me know.

In spite of it only being 99% done, I couldn’t resist an opportunity to nab some shots while the light was right.
