Default Reproduction Fat Chance Decals

Reproduction Fat decals are in the works, guys. No more waiting around for Wendyll to send you the decals you paid for 6 months ago. No more hoping for the correct colors and styles to still be available. The goal is to have repros eventually available in every combination for every bike that Fat Cogs want to restore to original condition. I donno if it will ever completely be done, but the ball is at least rolling.

To start with, I decided that the current decals that are on the bikes are too fragile for everyone (thus why everyone NEEDS new ones), and we're going to take a different direction with the materials, and do something that will stand up to mountain biking a bit better. The goal is to have decals that are capable of being externally applied, clear coated or left uncoated. I don't think we will be able to go to the efforts and expense to do a decal that is capable of handling powdered clear coats. The demand just isn't high enough.

For now, as mentioned in the other thread, we are working up decals for Fat Chance, Wicked, Wicked Lite and Yo Eddy

Post Reproduction Fat Chance Decals

Doug,

That's pretty slick! Must've taken a lot of hard work?

Not to throw another monkey wrench into what you're doing here, but the Fat City bikes that were made before like 1988 didn't have the Mass. Flag, they had just a simple tiny American Flag at the top of the seat tube, I'm sure that many of us here have these on our older bikes-That little decal has always been something that I've wanted to get reproduced...Is anyone else interested in including this one in your artwork?

Thanks,

Michael-NYC

Nothing proprietary about the flag. It measures 1 1/4' x 3/4' and is applied over the clear coat, so I don't think it was really a part of the decal set persay and probably sourced from somewhere else.

And Doug - you're awesome. My bikes and I thank you!

As long as there is a flag and colors in the decals already, we can add that flag to the rest of the art. It will be included with the art for the early bikes, which will come later.

Thanks Doug! I could never find a proper replacement for that plain little flag - Note it has rounded edges...

No orders will be taken until I actually have decals in my hands. We're a bit away from that at this point. I will post more details as they appear.

I have a complete Yo Eddy set I am working with. I'm proceeding with the art, but it can be slow going fitting the work in around other things. The Wickeds and Wicked Lites are just about done, though. My hope is to get these produced VERY soon.

I think everyone willbe happy to finally have a source for resto decals, and I hope there is a boom in the Fat Cogs enthusiasm, too.

Default ready soon?

I really need a set of decals for a 1989 hot pink Wicked. Mine are peeling like potato chips.

Hey, are these (hot pink) bikes powder coated or painted? Doesn't seem to be a clear coat over my decals, and they're in pretty bad shape. I'm trying to decide whether to repaint, or just leave history as it is (I still have my True Temper tubing decal, for instance, which can't be replaced best I can tell)....

At any rate, would love to have a new set of HD decals for this baby. She still rides sweet!

Thanks for the forum!

Newby, bt

Default Decals

Yo,
I'm getting my 87' Fat repainted. I believe you can get decals from http://www.sssink.com/bicycledecals.htm. They supplied decals to Fat City Cycles. (and about 2/3rds of bicycle companies out there) They won't just sell to anyone, as they don't want a bunch of Huffies running around with Fat decals. But the bicycle painter of your choice should be able to get them by proving their credentials. I'm not sure of cost quite yet. Good luck!

Well, here it is. I just received by new paint and decals yesterday. I'm going to let the paint settle in the heat a bit more before I build it up. All I need is a seat post clamp that will fit and a phil cog to complete the parts list.

I had a local beantown gent do the paint. He paints on the side and isn't looking for any advertising, so I'll respect that. He did an amazing job! Decals came from Screen Specialty Shop, Inc. I'll show more pics when I get it built up.

With other people producing various decals for individuals, and my wife and I in the process of preparing our house to be listed, my decal reproduction efforts have been back-burnered for a while. I have no plans of producing anything in the near future. Too many irons in the fire...

Sorry.

No worries, sometimes other things are more important! Did you have any more artwork done than is shown on the front page? I have a friend who works for a sign/display/sticker/graphics company who may be able to help out...

Default Decals and Frame Numbers. So Many Questions !!!

Hi Folks,

I have just purchased a Yo Eddy from the EBAY and its in need of a little TLC. The frame number is YO M 2025 so I was wondering if that gave me an idea of the year of manufacture ? I am also looking for a seat pin and I am not sure of the size ? And I am probably going to get a spray done here in the UK by Chas Roberts. So I will also need some decals Yellow with a Black In Fill if possible. I think its got a 1 1/8th head tube so it should be suspension adjusted ? But for what travel I dont know ?

So how do I get the decals ?
What seat pin size do I need ?
Any idea on fork travel adjustment ?
How do I get the Yellow and Black decals ?
