Default 1987 Fat Chance

Thought I would share my latest acquisition with everyone. I am sure a few of you saw it on ebay, twice, and I kicked myself for not picking it up the first time.
Over all condition of the bike is amazing. All parts look to be original and in great shape.

Frame- 1987 Fat chance
Fork- Fat box crown
Stem- Salsa
Bar- ??? (can anyone identify it for me?)
Seatpost- IRD
Cranks/BB- Bullseye
Wheels- Bullseye, on mavic oxygen m6

a Merlin or Interloc bar. I'd say Merlin, but they both had the shims. You can't see any name remnants out in the sun?

Nice score. I'm really jealous...

Yeah its a beauty. I also have an '87 (87701) & has U brake under chainstay. Have to say I like the upper brake better.

Post 1987 Fat Chance

That bike seems to be a "Team Comp" which according to the 1987 catolog came with a Titanium Fat Chance handlebar...That's a great score!

I have a later Team Comp and have seen a few others and none had rack mounts on the (G.P. Wilson) dropouts.
