Here are a few pics from the retro meet at the SSMM. You'll all be glad to know that Fat Chance was by far the most well represented make. There was even a guy from IF there who seemed quite impressed by the Fat turnout. Anyhow here are the pics



Scant's Lavendar Yo.



Shock-a-Billy




Jez's (new) Fat Chance Ti

Default Best of the rest

I know this is a fat chance board but I reckon you'll apreciate these



Voted best in show. 1992 Mountain Goat. The paint has to be seen to be believed.




Super retro Cannondale. At a guess I'd say 1988




Breezer lightning.


Scant might be able to fill in a few more of the details.

For those interested the rest of the pictures can be seen here.

So where is the shot with all of your ugly mugs in it? I've been waiting to see what you guys look like

Nice Mountain Goat, too. What a collection of awesome bikes. I would have loved to have been there.

Ha. Those struts aren't as out of place as the deore vs on my yo. Every man and his dog kindly pointed out they were the wrong era.

Great photos of the bikes, I wish that I could have been there,

Scant, that fork does not look bad, and the color is beautiful.

And of course the grello Yo is gorgeous too.

Is the red Billy as small as it looks or is that just the camera angle? What year is it?

The red billy was super clean. I guess scant can probably fill in the rest of the details.

Default My Billy

It's a small and I got it directly from Fat in July 97, actually ordered it in February 97... never thought it would arrive. Still ride it regular, took it to Morzine 2 years ago for a week and it was superb!
