Fat Chance Wicked Frame - 16.5".

I bought this a while back for a friend who was planning to build it up, but I don't think that's ever going to happen and it's just sitting in the box I received it in taking up space.

I need to raise a few bucks for a new cross frame, so throwing this out there.

Here is the text from the original ad: "This is a Fat Chance Wicked steel frame 16.5", serial no: A00058W. No rust, garage kept, original Fat City Cyles builders sign-off card (pictured). Also includes sealed bearings and aluminium seat clip retainers (also pictured). Very very minor cosmetic scratches. Bonus Team Fat Chance bumper sticker! Selling because I have too many bikes; planned on building it up but never did."

It comes as described, no fork, HOWEVER, the previous owner failed to mention to me that the rear triangle had been repainted silver (rest of the frame is blue).

I don't have any pictures at the moment, but let me know if you're interested and I can get some. It comes as described above, all I did was unpack it to inspect it, then put it back in the box.

I paid $275 or so with shipping on this. Would like to recover most of that, but that's probably not realistic. Make me an offer...

Update with some pictures. Sorry for the poor quality, I'm not home and had my sister take and send these to me with her phone.

I'm not saying it's an issue... I'm just pointing it out. My first MTB had a U-Brake and I kinda liked they way it worked (unless it was very muddy but don't advocate riding in mud anyway).
