This bike now lives with me in Winnipeg.

For a while there the only decals available from Fat Chance ranch were Wicked Lite decals, so everything that went for repaints got them. They aren't right in a couple of areas: the Chris Chance sticker on the chainstay and the FAT CITY CYCLES in a serifed font for starters.

It's being repainted and decaled as I type and will have a full, NOS XT group, RM-17s and with Ritchey bar/stem/seatpost in the not too distant future.

After confirming them to be G.P. Wilson dropouts, (with Jeff from firstflight- his site has a 1990 with these same dropouts), the bike was mine. Also has original black wicked fork with white splatter pain...very cool.

The pics were taken on my first ride; it has mostly original parts (all XT groupset, including the headset, except for the shifters), making it quite period correct for a 1989/1990, but it does need a few changes, (the handlebars/shifters/pedals).

Not too much work to do to finish this project. Please give me feedback on ideas,parts, things I missed or got wrong, etc....

Are the decals right for the year? Is the year correct? The serial number: 100910

The G.P. Wilson dropouts were on the team bike around 1989/1990...I didn't think they made use of the G.P. dropouts in 92/93...but I'm not sure.

I've posted this bike on Retrobike, and members Scant and Ameybrook have said it looks like a Fat respray, not a wicked lite, since wicked lites were made later than 89/90, and it doesn't appear to be a wicked either, but perhaps a Team....

I'm now posting here and on fatcogs in hopes that someone might have a better idea as to this bike's history...or maybe even a prior owner pops up??? it could happen

Thanks, and now the pics:
















G.P. Wilson dropouts (rear) the front fork has them as well
