Default 95 Fat Titanium TFM006

I aquired this Fat late last year from my good friend in Amsterdam. I have made a few changes- swapped out the heavy Tange fork for a NOS Yo Eddy that turned up on eBay last month and changed the bars to a slightly wider Titec which came also from the Netherlands (cheers Roy!). I have just painted the forks and need to find some bosses so I can mount the brakes and I can take it for a ride at last. Finally, last on the list are the cranks. Idealy I would like some Syncros Revolutions or black Graftons.
Hope you like it guys. I will try and get some better pictures over the weekend if it warms up a little.

Totally rockin build!
I hope you used lots of anti seize on the headset and seatpost as Ti on Ti tends to weld itself together if you don't.

Super light too!. Must be fun to ride.

Good Dr.

looks fantastic in the guise that it is in.

what we really need to work on is returning this bike to its rightful home back here in the US and of A. just too cold there in the UK. the bike looks unhappy. maybe we could retire it out here to the west coast? my garage is being converted into an old frames home!

Ha! It is cold over here but my Fats are happy- they live in a heated garage and only see trails in the summer sun or on crisp, dry winter mornings. They spend most of the winter being loved, polished and cherished.
I do look forward to the better weather around April, they will all getsome use again- esecially the Wicked which is still my favourite old skool trail bike. Until then I will have to make do with riding my modern Moots.
