How old is your Fat Chance? I used to know the guy here in Melbourne that 'imported' them (?) Fat Chance closed in '94. Gee, is it that long ago? Not sure about local restorers. Check this site though, for stuff like.....

Thanks for the information Kukamunga.

I bought my frame overseas. I cant remember what year exactly, but it was around 1996-98.

I use to do a lot of riding with Simon from VICMTB and Todd the Fat Chance sponsored rider who works in a bicycle shop in Burke Street (sorry cant remember the name of the shop).

What of the bike needs to be restored - Frame repainted, Frame repaired?

Todd G Warnock. That's him. Used to work with him in one of Warren Cays' bike shops many moons ago. Haven't seen him for a few years now. Has he still got his Fat Chance/s? I thought he had something to do with importing them back in his and Simons' VICMTB days.
