    fat Chance 1987 tandem

    This frame was in almost mint condition and has been fully restored with new decals. It has Campy Centaur gears, front brake and brake levers, Euclid U-brakes, Phil hubs and captain BB, Cook Bros. tandem cranks and stoker BB spindle, Salsa stems, QRs and chainrings, IRD seatposts, Brooks seats, Ritchey handlebars, Velocity Aeroheat 40h rims, Wheelsmith spokes, Specialized tires and cages and non-period correct Time Gripper pedals. The color was called candy apple red and had a beautiful shine in sunlight. It rides like a dream: extremely stable and lots of fun! More here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/3176161...th/5919038664/

    Okay, that thing is sweet!
    Really nicely done, and glad to hear that you're riding it, and not just gawking at it.

    Thanks all! Yes, the paint is original. It's called Candy Red Apple or something like that and it is stunning in sunlight. I'm sorry but I don't know what arc is. I would post if I knew.
