Default 1985 Fat Chance

Just got this one locally through Ebay. It's an original Nashville bike with a very old Cumberland Transit (local shop) sticker still on it.

1985 Fat Chance #85643 (hard to read last digit, but pretty sure)
Color: Black with white decals
Build: Almost all original - Shimano Deer Head derailleurs and cantis, Suntour XC thumbies and hubs, Sugino AT cranks, Magura brake levers.

I'll be cleaning it up, but won't change much.

Default Another 83

Frame type: Fat Chance
Serial Number: 8317
Year: 1983
Size: 21"
Color: Black with White Decals
Location: CA
Owner: Chris

I had another one almost exactly like it but red (w/Phil hubs & TA crank) stolen off my back portch a little over ten years ago. I bought that one new from John Troja.

I have the bmx laprade seatpost for it but I still need to find the shim.

I know the tires are embarrassing but it's really hard to find tires that old.

Chris,

Welcome to the site, you're obviously not new to Fat City!

That is a great bike, are you the original owner?

I think that you deserve a waiver on the new tires considering what happened to your red Fat ! Perhaps someone on this site knows the whereabouts of that bike and can try to help reunite you with it? This is the perfect place to try to track it down as it sounds so rare that someone must've spotted it at some point...

Default Another Wicked Frame Lives!

Hi, Y'all:
Having trouble adding another post to the Frame Registry thread, so here's my info:

Wicked Fat Chance
Frame No. - 11369W
Year - 1992 (can anyone confirm this?)
Black with white decals
Full XT (when new!)
American Stem
Tapered fork
Nickname: Stormbringer

Bought almost new in '93 after it had been returned to Fat Chance to fix an out of round crank shell. The original owner would not wait and bought a Rocky Mountain. (Whose laughing now?) It sat in Bastion Cycles (Nanaimo, BC , Canada ), after full repair, for a few months until I made an offer they could not refuse!
It's been thrashed on Vancouver Island, raced, toured, commuted and followed me to Adelaide where it is still my only bike, a trail/commute rig. Needs a bit of work now......mine forever, tho.
Love the site...great for tips and has got me very enthused about fixing up the old beast.
Cheers!

Default Registering Frame

Hi All,

New to Fat Cogs, here's my rig:

Frame type (Yo!, Wicked, etc.): Yo Eddy Team
Frame number: 383YO4
Year of manufacture: 1994
Frame size: S/M
Color (original and repainted, if applicable): Team colors, purple fade to yellow
Location (city, state, country): Akron, Ohio, USA
Owner name: Brian
Photo, if possible: Attached

Thanks for keeping this registery. The bike I have is awsome! It has been sitting for years, and though the cables and wheels are shot, the frame looks like it is brand new- not even a chip on it! Evan has the team saddle.

I am checking this site almost daily for tips and info. Two notes, anyone catch my weird serial number? Any thoughts ion that? It is pretty clear, so I know I have it right, but it does nto seem to fit the convention.

Also, I am thinking about upgrading the drivetrain and fork with modern stuff, and keeping the old ones if I want to go back to period. Just not sure I want to go on a long ride with 15 year old stuff that has not been used in a decade. Thoughts? Thanks everyone!

I ride mostly modern, but once and awhile I'll ride some 7-speed XT or Suntour stuff. I tell you, nothing beats the feel of smooth-working 7-speed thumbshifters. The satisfying 'clunk' is pretty sweet. The brakes are going to leave you wanting more... but Vs should be fine on that bike.

Its very nice, and you got it for a song, IMO

I've been browsing the registry thread and I'm still not sure what year my Wicked is...I'm assuming it's around 1992, coz that's when I got it, but the S/N is a bit different fromthe usual 90-94 format.

It's: 11369W

Anyone have any ideas of where and when it was built?
I always assumed it was quad butted Tru-Temper as well. Maybe Triple butted?

Hmmm...perusing the FirstFlightBikes Fat serial list and it looks like the "9W" on the end would indicate a 1989 built frame.
Anyone have tubeset specs?

Default wicked

I think that you right about the year, but I do not think that the Wicked ever used quad butted (but I believe that the YO did, and maybe the 10th).

If you check the catalogs they will tell some of this info. Without checking, I am guessing double butted tubing.

Does anyone have a catalog handy to confirm or refute?

Thanks for that...I think you are right about the tubes...the Yo was the only one I could find with quad-butted actually stated. How about the Wicked Lite?

How cool is it that guys from Australia, Brazil and the USA are discussing their Fat's?
I'm so glad I still have mine. Soon to be shiny and newish again and still in steady use.
BTW Go you Hurricanes!
Cheers from Oz!

thanks a lot! i never found any specifics on the lite tubeset... it was being built at the same time line as the 10th and the quadbutted yo. otoh it's tubes are slim thus very different from the yo.

I doubt whether the 10th uses Quad butted tubing. Always assumed 10th was an early development of 2nd gen Yo tubing. 1st gen was Quad, 2nd 3ple TT OX3.

Btw I do not know what informations on quality the # of butts contains Some time ago read a story on what the # of butts denotes. Do not remember how the story was exactly, but I do know there was a lot misinformation and marketing concerned in communication by companies.

triple butted has always always been mentioned as a lighter compliant and tough front triangle.

Post 1984 Fat Chance # 118

Here is my latest Fat which has an interesting history behind it; It was custom ordered by an older gentleman from NYC way back in 1984 who called Chris Chance directly to ask him to make the frameset and then personally pick out the parts for him, Chris also built it up and then even drove it down from Somerville himself to deliver it to the guy on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and then for various reasons the bike literally sat unridden for the next 24 years...It's extremely mint and is one of the nicest of the old school original Fat Chances that I've ever come across, as it has virtually no mileage on it...There's more to the story, as far as how I wound up with it, but here are some crappy photos for now:

Thanks Rody! I will have to send you an e-mail later in the week because I saw your awesome forks and wanted to ask you some questions about possibly restoring my 1983 Fat Chance which is in rather crusty shape but I don't know if you can duplicate those old decals?
In a nutshell a friend of mine owned a bike shop in NYC from 1990-98(?) and the original owner of this 1984 Fat was a nice older gentleman who got the bike new in 84' from Chris Chance but the man was in a bad accident like a week after he got it that prevented him from ever riding the bike, so it just sat until he brought the bike into my friend's shop for a "cleaning and tune up" in like 1995 and he told the story about how he bought it and never used it and they were very careful to clean and adjust the bike and put it up on a high shelf to store it, which is where I first saw it 12+ years ago...My friend called the man to tell him that the bike was ready and then called him again every few months but he never picked it up! A few more years went by and my friend was closing up his shop in late 1998 and made a final call to the man who finally said that he was too old to ride it and that he no longer needed it, so he told my friend to just keep it! I lost touch with my friend after the shop closed and he left the city but we recently reconnected and it turns out that this was one of the only things that he saved from his old bike shop and he had it all wrapped up in storage and after all those years and a few months of discussing it we finally arrived at a deal so I went out to his house and picked it up last week and here it now sits in 2008 still mostly NOS. It's really unique and as far as I know there's most likely not another Fat Chance of this era in such original condition, please let me know if there is! It reminds me very much of the very first Fat Chance that I ever saw which was probably in late 1983 or 1984 in Central Park...same color too! It's a bit small for me but I honestly don't know if I'll really be riding it, I've got a few others that I can ride, this one is just like art work to me.

Well the garage I had pictured in my mind has Berber carpeting, a fully stocked mahogany wet bar, 60 inch plasma, and a leather Barcalounger.

That sounds like an appropriate surrounding for this bike, even though everyone knows that this bike probably rides really great and begs to be covered in mud, but that's probably not going to happen simply because I have other bikes to use to for that...

Hi, This is my first post. And -- this is my first experience with Fat Chance bikes. Now I'm totally infatuated. So far, I've collected an MBA review article, the 1990 catalog pdf files, and registered here. Would love any and all information specific to this model and year.

Had her out on the trail yesterday and had a blast. The bike handles wonderfully.


Frame type : Yo Eddy Team
Frame number: 034Z07
Year of manufacture: 1990
Frame size: M (17")
Color (original and repainted, if applicable): Repainted (I believe) Metalic Blue / Grello
Location (city, state, country): California, USA
Owner name: Joe
Photo, if possible:


Full Suntour XC pro w/grease guard build. Will need a few decals from Rody if they're still available. Please let me know if I've mis-stated anything. As I said, this Fat thing is all new to me.


Cheers~
Joe

Nice bike - been looking for one of those myself. I believe the paint is original. Enjoy it!
