Default 87 Wicked

Hi all,
It is great there is still so much interest in Fat City cycles.
This is my 87 Wicked, I bought the frameset from Tom Mowatt cycles in Lebanon New Hampshire. It was originally blue with a yellow fork. I got the inspiration for the paint job from seeing fat city's advertising in the back of a magazine. I hear that was called Matt's paint job? I just always called mine carnival cause it reminded me of all the lights and colors, and I used candy colors on the tubes. It is really not a difficult paint job, it just takes time
I did the paint work myself, I worked for a bike company in Colorado in the 90's as the painter. We did the steel and titanium frames along with the national team frames, and other sponsorship stuff.
The build at the time was cooks cranks, xt drivetrain, bullseye hubs.
Anyway I hope you like it, and I still ride it, the best east coast woods bike.
