Default new project--1981 Chris Chance

There's a thread over at MTBR VRC with more of the story, but for the meantime here are a few pics to share with the Fat Cogs who don't frequent those parts.

Two Qs:
Any idea how many frames Chris made from '77-'81 before Fat City?
Any idea where he earned his world champion stripes?

The parts are mostly just to get an idea of the bike built up--I used stuff i had laying around. I've got a proper set of parts headed my way for a period DA build. This is going to be fun.....

That is an unbelievable score. I saw this on Craigslist, unfortunately I ride a 56.

Not digging the white rear rim, this bike deserves a killer restoration project.

I am still kind of shocked I managed to get it and no one swooped in.

Man! I'd trade a kidney for that bike! What a great score!
