Default Yo!

Hey all, just wanted to join up and say hi!

I raced for Fat Chance back in the day, you might have seen a bit on me on retrobike:


Well anyone in the UK I can tell you a story. That bike was not mine, anyone that knows me will know i'm about 5"7 so that bike is WAY too big for me. That was my team mate (and still one of my best buds) Dave Hemmings bike. Dave was getting too much coverage in the magazines at the time so after they had taken the bike pics they decided to switch from Dave to me!

Anyway, loved my facts, had the team bikes including the team fade Yo Eddy and the Shokabilly and had my own Yo Eddy as well.

If anyone has Chris Chances email and can PM me, I know myself and Mark at Evolution Imports in the UK would like to get in touch.

Hey Clive

Welcome to the forum, hope you've enjoyed looking around. Funny you should pop up. I actually dug out a profile of your Shock A Billy as the inspiration for my build. It's over on RetroBike if you're interested.

You might find Chris here:

Hi Northern Dave, do you have a link to the shock a billy bit?

I had an email chat with Chris, he seems happy enough out of the bike biz!
