Default Fat Chance 10th Anniversary build

Hi everyone. For your enjoyment - I'd like to point your attention towards my Fat Chance 10th Anniversary build blog.

It's a long term project. I really love the process of searching for and finding obscure components. It's like Christmas every time I find another part needed for the build :*)


Feel free to comment.

I like the direction you're going with the campagnolo. It will truly be a stunning bike.

Default 10th build

great blog! it is neat to see the build in process.

I too built up my NOS 10th with NOS Campy parts and really like the way that it turned out. Not necessarily what I would want if it was a rider but most of the parts are beautiful. I tried the bullet shifters and later swapped them out for the thumbshifters (really not crazy about them either).
I test rode one back in 92 and it had Campy so it just seems right to me.

lovely bike,

Boy I'd love to come up with one of those Record front derailleurs. It will be the last piece to restore my Slim!
