Default 1994 Fat Chance Yo Eddy Sapphire Fade

morning guys,

well i got this rare paint job back in April and it came with a black Yo Eddy fork. Since the Nitto stem ii wanted to use was silver and the McMahon Steely Danz cranks had some weird red color, i decided to ask a very talented painter to take on the challenge and adjust all parts to the frame.

Well, and a few months later - i learned to be patient - i received the following pix today....






I think it is spot on.....and can't wait to merry the frame with the silver No Logo King.

Best regards

Moritz

Great start, after seeing some of your previous builds I wouldn't expect less.

LOTS of potential here. The color matching looks spot on! What are your plans for the rest of the spec?

It will get full XTR900 treatment - unsure yet about skinwall tires or blackwalls.

Thanks Miguel!

"yummi" indeed! I wish I could find a local painter that could knock out a fade like that.

Finally some outdoor pix as i haven't done anything more in the last few months…seat post is only a no name as i haven't found a nice one in 29.4 yet, so please ignore. clamp will also be turned into silver soon.







Remaining to do's: shorter BB, find a seat post (Ringle, AC or similar) and off you go!

Best regards

Moritz

Somehow i didn't like the skin wall tires so much and changed to blackwalls. Also the colored crankset will be replaced by an original XTR900.



A good seat post (AC or Kingsbery) would be the icing….

Was there anything wrong with the MRC's? Or was it an aesthetic issue?

Agree with the Chef, the Steely Danz looked amazing on this beauty.

It was just a bit to much color on the bike.
