    '85 Fat Chance Kicker

    This was my first attempt at building a singlespeed. Note the cheater granny ring, which eventually got removed once I felt comfortable that I could actually ride a singlespeed on any trail.

    cheater!

    And I don't mean the granny ring. The frame is retro but the parts are new! Not fair!

    LOL... I do have all the parts to make it period-correct but don't know if I'll ever get time to rebuild it that way.

    How old is that fork? It looks like a Yeti style 'Accu Trax' fork. Is it pre-Answer or perhaps Mongoose made?
