“This pink Chance is a bit of cycling history. When Chris Chance started making mountainbikes in the eighties under the name “Fat Chance”, this frame was kept somewhere in the workshop. It was used at a certain point to try a new paint and left and forgotten. That is, until Ron from King Cage (an ex-Fat Chance worker) asked if he could have the frame. Chris agreed and Ron applied the high gloss pink coat, as well as the last set of Chris Chance decals around. The fork was rubbed on the left side and was touched up with fluorescent orange and yellow. I recently obtained the frame and built it up with a NOS Superbe Pro 7-speed group, Mavic MA4 tubeless wheels, Vittoria tubulars, Modolo Speedy front end, Selle Italia Superleggere seat and Look World ARC pedals (matching world cup stripes on the rear).”
Man, that’s one hell of a bike. Check out more photos at Mac Spikes’ Flickr.
