1999 Specialized Fatgirl
In 1999 I walked in to my local bike shop and saw the ugliest bike I had ever seen. I remember looking at it on the show room floor and feeling bad for whoever had to ride that bike. It was a specialized fat girl.
24 years later, all I could think about is having this ugly work of art. This completes my collection of fat boys and girls.🤓
The only problem I have now is finding parts for it. Specifically the original decals as I want to restore it. The problem I’m having is whenever I ask in a group if anyone has fat girl parts for sale, the admins of the groups delete my post. True stories
So far I have restored the sprocket, Cranks and handlebars. Installed new grips and brake cable. Regreased both wheel hubs, bottom bracket and headset. It’s ready to ride as is. I am planning on replacing the spokes.
I’ll be on the lookout for a better conditioned seat and new decals.
