No, I wanted a Surly Pugsly but for that money I would get another motorcycle. This is a Walmart bike that I painted the rims and after a few rear sprocket changes, I have it where I want it.
This is a Mongoose Beast. A cheap bike that I don't mind getting a little rusty riding at low tide.
Oh man, tell me how you did it. I have wanted a fatty for quite a few years. Price held me back. I do have an S.A.S.S for pure exercise fun, and my race mountain bike I built up on a litespeed frame I got cheap because the local bike shop couldn't sell it.
It is so easy, change the rear sprocket to a 22 tooth, on Ebay for $5. add 1 link to the chain and you are riding in the sand. it is also a lot of fun in the snow.

Is this what you started with? We bought a Fat-bike from Walmart and took it for a test ride | Gear Review | Gear Junkie
I had absolutely no idea you could get one anywhere near that price. I guess I didn't look in the right places. I'm not really a bike snob, but I use to do a lot of 24/48 hour adventure races and good gear matters.
Yes, there are plenty of bad reviews but I've had mine for quite a while and really like it. The tires are heavy, my next mod is to get the Surly tubes and tires, they are 2 pounds lighter!
