Fat Chance Specs

Below is a spec listing for Fat Chance bikes.  Please keep in mind that specs often changed during the year and parts were often substituted for an out of stock part.  Many of the earlier bikes were made in batches and the specs would change with each batch.  Dealers would also change components for a customer at the time of the sale.  I have also done my best to enter information correctly but it is possible that I will make "cut and paste" errors.
