Every detail is perfect. A really beautiful Fat. Lovely color combination. Yellow and blue go together perfectly. Greetings Helmut

I know a lot of folks think Grello or the-milka-color-whose-name-escapes-me when they think Fat, but for me... This is it - the "stock" blue and yellow of the early Wickeds that I've always thought of as Team Sweden - my iconic Fat image.

Thumbs Up Nice Kicker!

I think I'm your big cousin. Wish mine came in the team color too. Looks way cooler!
What do you of my lime green and yellow?

Default Anyone have an 86 in red with black fork?

I would love to see a picture of an 86 in Red and black. I had mine painted and I want to turn it back. Just thought it would be good to show them how it should look. Does anyone know the colors they used then? Thanks
