I've got an old Fat Chance "Kicker" from the mid-80's which needs new BB parts. Anyone have an idea where I can find the press-in cartridge bearings, spindle, and retaining collar?
Specifically, the bearings 35mm OD, 15 ID and feature a c-clip ring in a groove.

Just a follow-up. Found the exact bearing replacements at bearingplace.com $12.50 each. The standard 5/8 shaft collars with set screw also seems readily available. The spindle, Cook Bros used to support, now seems rare.

If you're still looking, you might try calling around to Boston-area shops.
Wheelworks and Harris Cyclery strike me as the kind of shops that would have carried Fat Chance and might still have some parts kicking around in the basement.
