    1980s Fat Chance WICKED - frameset w/ stem & bottom bracket

    A few yrs ago you could buy that bike, in such miserable state of paint, for $150. Now it´s $600. I can buy a Yo Eddy sans fork for $600 now.

    I believe that´s a small early Yo but serial number would tell. Early Yos were small, medium and large only.

    1993 Wicked lite headset

    Your set up is 1in threaded. If you go for a King you want a threadnut... more versatile than the gripnut.

    Pinhole in BB shell joint

    Follow I robot´s instructions: patch it w/ epoxy. I would do it from inside (if possible) and outside. Then forget about it. Build and ride it as hard as you can. Bicycles are Life! As such they are imperfect too. Btw... love that color. Black or silver decals will look lovely there.

    Wickeds are not particularly valuable and the mod you pretend enhances value imho. Otoh, a rusted out wicked has even less value, as in zero value.
