I picked up an 85 Fat Chance that needs a little workm including a repain. I was thinking of getting it done with a black, topped with splotches of neon hot pink, blue, and yellowishgreenfadetororange.

Now to find the right person to complete this vision...wish I could hardwire my mind to a monitor, so someone could see exactly what I could see...or at least have the skill and artmanship to do it myself :D

Sadly, I don't have either of those :cry:

That seems to be the concensus.

Would you happen to know the best way to contact Rodney? He's on the VRC, fatcogs, and here...then he has his site.

BTW what forks does the Fat Chance have? I think the bar stem combo will look fantastic on a Fat.

EDIT: 2 year waiting list on restorations!

Yes! How did you know? Doug Carter sold it to a good guy from vrc/fatcogs, who then traded it to me for my Team Comp disguised as a wicked lite. It wasn't a straight up trade, some cool parts were thrown in with it. The Team Comp was way too big for me; this one fits just right.

As an aside, I reckon I would look for a period correct bike be it polished ally or ti or single colour steel and have custom panel graphics that mimicked the bars 8)

Yes...come to think of it, I guess it is elementry being that the retro mountain bike world is such a small one.

I'm in the process of selling off all my aluminum, so no polished alloy. The ti bike will come down the road some.

The steel with the custom panel graphics sounds interesting...do you have an example?
