I'll take a punt with my ninety-something Sunn Roader. Just finished today and not even had time to get it polished, let alone ride it yet!

Wow, love that Alan! That Vitus is nice too. Still in doubt if I will enter another Chris Chance....

OK: here goes. This bike was owned by Ron Andrews of King Cage, a former Fat Chance worker. He salvaged this frame after it was used to try a new black paint. He added the pink front end and used the last original Chris Chance decals around. The frame switched owners a few few times until I bought it and built it up with a NOS Superbe pro gruppo. The wheels are Mavic with Vittoria sew-ups, Modolo Speedy cockpit and Selle Italia Superleggera saddle. The cage is a King cage obviously :wink:

Well, here goes - again! This is my c. 1980 Buzz Lo-Pro time trial bike, 653 tubing, 700c sprint wheels front and rear with tubulars (not 'sew-ups' :wink: ) Rear disc is a very early one (Russian I was told) from Mike Dyason, front is a Mavic/Assos 19mm radially bladed 28 spoked with Dourdoigne 'Grand Prix de Nations' silk tyre, Campagnolo drivetrain, Mavic/Profile/TTT bars and stem, Dia Compe brake levers AME hoods with DC aero front brake, Campag Mirage rear (because of cable routeing), Turbo Super saddle NOS on Miche aero seatpin.

Buzz was a brand built in Leeds for a few years by a local clubman around 1980. I managed to source some original decals from him through local club contacts.

Ridden a couple of times in anger this year but the results weren't anything to write home about. The fault of the rider not the bike :oops:
