1989 Wicked Fat Chance w/ Box Crown Fork

$1600 + shipping

This baby is a dream to ride and has been as awesome project – time to let someone else enjoy it though.

Very rare to see a Wicked with the original box crown fork, this one has been built up with high end components including a Suntour drive train.

The frame, fork, & stem have been stripped down and repainted by Hot Tubes (https://www.hottubes.com/custom-paint-gallery), decals are from SSSink, and tube internals have been treated with JP Weigle Frame Saver.

Highlights of the components are:

- Cooks Bros cranks
- IRD seat post
