    1992 Wicked Fat Chance

    I have the opportunity to buy a 1992 Wicked Fat Chance but I do not know what these bikes are worth. I do not know much about it but it does look like it is in very nice condition.

    The guy told me to "make an offer", how much should I offer him?

    Thanks,
    Ian

    depends what you plan on doing with it. As it looks like a teeny tiny frame, If you plan on riding it I'd make sure it fits before I made any offer. If you're planning to resell it to make a profit, I'd offer $5.

    Are you sure about it being a '92? I had an '89 Wicked with canti's in the back, not sure when they moved away from U-brakes but it was prior to '89.

    You're right. I just realized it is from mombat.org and the bike in the picture is an 85, not a 92. He's trying to pull a fast one on me.

    I'm walking away from this one.

    The bike in the pic is not a "Wicked," and it looks a lot like this bike which is not for sale:

    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Anyway, he's saying he used that picture because it is green, like his bike, not that that bike was his.

    I'm still walking away.

    I have a silver bike for sale. I'm going to steal Bushpig's photo of a ham.

    Yeah, seller sounds shady.
