Room for a little one?

1995 Fat Chance Shock a Billy, custom painted BITD by Fat Chance in Judy yellow along with the Kooka cranks.

Sadly I dont have a build thread any longer due to there been a large number of bike thefts from my area so I thought best to remove most of my bikes from the net a number of months back.

Anyhow here we go:

If I may make one suggestion.....
Cant you simply change your RBUK User name to something like ....Retro Rick....or...... BOTM Dude.....or...... Mkozaczek (Nevermind that ones taken)
And while your at it......change "just ouside Macclesfield" to.......
"deep in the heart of Stoke on Trent"....or....... "Down the lane from Altrincham"

I dont think that anyone here would be offended and we wouldnt be deprived of your build threads.
Just trying to be of assistance :wink:

:?: :shock:


Didn't the most trashed/hard working bike once start out as being box fresh, :!:

any self respecting builder is hardly going to build a "rider" and then abuse it before taking a few snaps in order to enter B.O.T.M ..........so I don't get the above there's nothing wrong with streaching yourself to build something special

I will conceed that Tigern Klein and Rumpys Bontrager are in a league of their own and obviously took more time and bucks to complete than a humble Kona or Rocky Mountain where period parts are dime a dozen, but good on them I say ....still doesn't guarentee them success.


They will all be judged by our peers and one will prevail... thats the beauty of a democratic "one man/women" "one vote" system.

Its a fair statement, no digs at any members.

Didn't the magazines feature different price point bikes during different issues. I was always disappointed when the new issue would show up and the cover would say; " The budget issue, Best Bikes Under $500" or the something like that.

For me, the rags were a lot like BOTM, a place to find the coolest of the cool and then daydream a little.

Yeah, if I wanted to see a sub $500 bike BITD, I could go look in my garage. ;)
