All I know is that when I sent my 1990 Wicked back to Fat (in NY) in the spring of 1996 to be repainted, it came back with Wicked Lite stickers on it....

I've heard from several sources that, for a while, Wicked Lite were the only decals available and that they were applied to whatever came in the door.

I just restored a Team Comp that had Wicked Lite decals because of a similar era factory repaint.

Well in 1996 it was Arrest Me Red!, a stock color at Fat at the time. Chris Igleheart built me a fork recently and I asked him if he could match it. His guy did pretty well, but I didn't expect perfection matching hues on a 14-15yr old paint job.

Grello and Team Violet have been discussed quite a bit here, AMR! Not so much....

I still wish I had kept the original Grello though, and I hope to get that resprayed on it some day.

It appears 1995 was the last year of the Wicked Lite, before the Buck Shaver took over in 1996. I could be wrong, just going of the Brochures on Retrobike :

1996

1995 was the last year of production for the Wicked Lite. Mine was one of the last 5 out the door.
