Please find the latest addition to FoD City Cycles,a 1989 Fat Chance in Kandy Wild Cherry.I got this bike from Ron Andrews,ex Fat City employee and racer,Ron also used to work for Merlin,Jo Breeze and Yeti to name a few, he now runs King Cage.
This bike has unusally some rack and mud guard mounts , which are not standard. It is built up with Suntour XCD accushift which i believe to be original, it also has some beautiful crome Mavic MA2 rims.The original thumbshifters and levers are a nice touch too.
The Colour is lovely , as all Fat paint jobs generally are,its like a glittery purple when the sun is on it. There are a couple of dents and allot of stone chips, but i'm happy with this as its going to be a year round rider.
So what am I going to do with it ? very little for the time being, new decals and a period Saddle and may be some amber walls ,thats it.First impressions are a little twitchy, may put a longer stem on as its quite short.Tomorrow It will get its first proper outing on the West Midlands FoD ride.
