1990 Fat Chance 

Somewhat unusual Fat Chance frame since it uses GP Wilson drop outs on the frame and fork.  The rear drop outs have windows cut into them (lighter?) which looks nice with the Fat Chance bullet stay caps.  The paint looks to have been inspired by a roll of Lifesavers??  Other than the drop outs and paint, it is built up with a pretty standard XC Pro gruppo.
