1994 Fat Chance Shock-A-Billy 

Nice first year full suspension frame from Fat Chance.  Many of the smaller builders didn't the resources to design a full suspension design so they relied on the popular Amp-style rear.  It took another two years before Fat debuted their own design.   This one is in the Team Violet color with a color matched Rock Shox.  This bike features some nice components from Ringle, Piranha, White Industries and Cook Brothers.
