1987 Wicked Fat Chance 

Nice Wicked Fat with the Shimano M730 Deore XT component group.  The 730 group featured the rear "U" brake, Biopace II chain rings and the white-letter shifter and derailleur set.  First generation cassette hub, 6 speed, that uses the small cog for the lock ring.  Nice bullet cap stays and neat little gusset and "anti-clamp-rotation" tab at the seat collar.
