Default Asking help with estimated value. 1985


I have just joined the forum to help with the appraisal of a FAT that I have.

I have, what I believe to be, a 1985 standard Fat Chance. serial number 85116.

This bike was purchased new from Belmont Cylce Works in Belmont Mass. It was used to commute everyday to work in Cambridge. It also saw a couple saddle bag tours. It was never abused, just ridden.

From what I can tell aside from a rack, lights and fenders it is all original.

Avocet USA touring 1 saddle
Shimano unishift control shifters
Magura brake levers
Sugino 4t cranks
Shimano Deore pedals
Ukai 26x1.50 HE rims
Shimano Deore XT brakes
Suntour seatclamp with BMX post
Shimano600 sealed mechanism fork bearings
48,36,28 front gears
28,24,20,17,15,13 cassette
Suntour hubs
Mt. Zefal fenders
seat post measurement 22.5" to top of seat clamp
it has the triangle handle bars (don't know correct FAT term)

Paint and decals are original, some scrapes with light rust like on crossbar where it was probably leaned against a light pole and near the crank where the chain looks to have rubbed a couple of times. Belmont Cycle Works sticker.

Please see the two pics that I have attached. If you have any questions to help in appraisal please ask or if I can take a couple extra pics I am glad to.

I am considering selling this bike but on the fence. Just trying to get all the info straight before making my decision.

Thanks in advance.
