1998 Specialized Fatboy A1
This rounds out my collection of A1 aluminum Fatboys. I have the Speed Green, Mirror Orange, and now Mirror Blue.
Sold to SpclzdAone4life Aug 2010
New:I found all the original parts -except for a usable '98 seat. So now this bike has original 1 piece Strongarm cranks and the original, more generic stem and seat post clamp. I also put the right handlbars on here. I kept all the red accents.
Old: Unlike the other Fatboys I have, this has a chrome fork instead of painted. This also has the cool â€˜sharkâ€™ inspired front dropouts.
I actually had to borrow the headset, stem, and seat clamp from one of my other bikes to finish this one out.
They are from the same year, but different design than would have been original.
I got the seat from Deacon practically new, and I happened across 1998 stamped Specialized race cranks at a swap meet and bought a spindle again from a member.
The original would have been 1 piece Strongarm cranks.
The Sprocket is NOS and still available on Ebay.
The bars have a Redline sticker on them, but are pretty similar to the original bars used by Specialized, Schwinn and others.
I have the original 36 spoke Specialized wheelset, for this bike with flip-flop rear hub, and the original Specialized BMXtreme tires.
I wanted a more dynamic look so Red Odyssey Slic cable, Blue ODI Crush grips (PorkchopsBMX), and red Tektro brakes instead of the original raw.
