    I was offered a chance to buy a fat chance yo eddy kids bike. Were they ever produced

    Offered a kids fat chance yo eddy bike today. Not sure if it is legit though as I can't find any info on it. It comes with a coaster brake and not sure if it is 16" wheels. Are they trying to scam me by just stickering up a bike or do they exist? Any help would be appreciated.

    If you have the passion for it, then buy it. But if the seller is passionate about scamming you, then I passionately recommend not getting it.

    probably better to ask in the VRC section:
    Official FAT chance thread
    or here:
    FatCogs Community Discussion Forums

    as I'm sure someone there will know... or ask on fat chances website/facebook

    I HIGHLY doubt that's legit, and even if it was, I'd imagine the price would be through the roof. Sounds like a steaming load of BS to me.
    Got any pics?

    I was looking at mower conditioners on a online farm equipment website. Some guy had one of the first mow co's that was ever made(like 1965)had it painted up nice-said it was a 2003 and some fake model name. Was looking to get around $10,000 for it. That model would really be worth about $0.

    Know your roots, son. Fat Chance are OG top shelf mountain bikes. They are coming back as a brand, but not really the same thing as the original.

    Fat was a custom builder. It is certainly possible that there were one or two kids' bikes.
