Never seen a set of Tange Struts go this high, esp in this condition, though the color is nice....
I popped this up on Retrobike, but just so it is local, here's my '84. Thanks to Mikey for the tip on it -- made it to Arizona all the way from Maine sometime in late 2013.
I took it for a spin this afternoon and snapped some shots. Enjoy!

$1,000 BIN. Perhaps a tad high but when are you going to find a complete Wicked in what looks like pretty nice shape with custom paint.
I totally dig it.
This should help me stay diligent in rebuilding my 1991 Yo Eddy, owned since new :)
Salsa roller stem
No logo CK headset
Onza chromo ski bends
IRD post (shimmed from 27.2)
black perf turbo
XC Pro front mech
XT rear mech
silver XT m730s and silver Moon Units
Just to add to the continuing saga of information:
Here is a pic of my 1993 Yo Eddy in yellow, and a 1994 BOI for comparison. The length (sus correction) is the same, but the leg diameter difference is pretty clear here. The '94 fork has Campy dropouts too.
Repost from MTBR and RBUK...on the odd, off chance that any of my fellow Cogs are only here.
I'd been drooling over these for some time now thanks to you lot. And I am happy to report that I found one thanks to the glory of internet...
Here's the next round of Monster from me. Got it bone stock, and couldn't leave it alone. Yet to do cables and chain, but you get the idea.
As it started (though with a different Turbo as I was reglueing the Gel Turbo)
And the lightly retro-modded current state of the beast.
These are mine. I am gearing up to move to California, so I need to thin the herd. You all will be the first to know if I decide to slice off any Fats.
In the meantime though, here is a really nice Salsa Ala Carte and a fillet brazed Mt Tam. Both are phenomenal riders. Smooth, balanced...
Just in case there is anyone here who doesn't follow MTBR's VRC forum (http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=639018) or Retrobike.uk(http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=112014&sid=0052a3475e020eb36f0f81dcc9073ea1), here is my finally completed Chance.

Hurtling toward my snowy home is an early 90s Wicked. My firdt one--I am stoked!
I am not sure exactly what year it is, but I assume by the spec '91ish. I have a couple questions for you guys:
Any date-by-decals experts?
The bike currently has some blown Manitou I's but I am going to...
There's a thread over at MTBR VRC with more of the story, but for the meantime here are a few pics to share with the Fat Cogs who don't frequent those parts.
Any idea how many frames Chris made from '77-'81 before Fat City?
Any idea where he earned his world champion stripes?
A few updates!
Rody's Ho is DOWN! Chris' King is ON! And I've got a mess of spacers and a hi-rise Salsa to fill in while I wait for a custom stem from Winter Cycles for a drop bar set up. Some of you may have seen these on MTBR, but for the sake of Fat posterity, I thought I'd add them to the...
