    1994 Fat Chance Yo Eddy on its way back to life.....

    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 merge the frame with the silver No Logo King.

    Best regards

    Moritz

    Nice. Purple to blue fade always looks top shelf to me.

    That is going to look stellar once you've built it up.

    I really like the matching cranks and stem.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Very, very pretty. Can't wait to see it built up and shredding some dirt.

    Very nice. Hung with silver parts it should be very classy.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims 80's vintage 32 or 36
    Salsa or similar stem. 1" threadless. 120 with rise.

    Thanks guys. It took him nearly 4 months to figure out the colors, but it was worth the wait. Groupset will be XTR900 and a lot of silver of course. Question is: classic skin wall tires or black walls, but i assume both will be tested.

    Most purists will say gumwall but I think it depends. What kind of riding and what kind of trails? I would, at least, put on gumwalls and take pictures.

    I know. Will try both and post pix as soon as it is fully built up. Unfortunately there are some other bikes here as well queuing, so unsure when it will be finished.

    Does anyone know by chance, what kind of axle length the MRC Steely Danz cranks require?

    Thx

    Gorgeous! The magical color shifting bike - it looks like a whole different color from the first pictures you posted.

    Man - this project is so classy, I'm reluctant to suggest anything. But you know what it;s screaming for, don't you? A titanium seatpost and about 35 volts DC!!!
