1985 Fat Chance

Relatively early Fat Chance bike.  Features the Fat bullet cap stays, seat collar anti-rotation tab, press-fit bottom bracket and above bb cable guides.  Mostly Suntour SC components with a rear Roller Cam brake.  The original fork was replaced with a suspension fork and the original was lost.  The Ritchey fork was the best option we had.  If anyone has an old Fat fork in yellow, give us a shout.
