I think the price is high for condition, but recall someone "has been looking for one of these". Looks bigger than 54 to me?

These are great bombproof ss/fg, this one is very nice and a bargain IMO, my kid had one that survived plenty of rough riding before it got stolen.

Not necessarily disagreeing but I would be burning rubber if this was near and even close to my size, say maybe 58-60 or especially more.

Keep in mind these were very much almost full on DiNucci design and spec, he had full license on these.

Get in tha choppa, run don't walk IMO.

I don't see anything life threatening condition wise and this color scheme doesn't do any favors, they weren't stunning even when new.

1987 Fat Chance Team Comp Frameset Size Med No Dent or Rust Issues Free Shipping To The Lower 48

$2,000
Listed 2 days ago in Pawtucket, RI
​​​​​​

​​​​​​
​​​​​​
​​​​​​Details
  • Condition
    Used - Good
Given to the original owner by Chris Chris. The bike was left white and was painted by New England Fat Racers and others in The business at that time. No dents or rust issues 17in center to center seat tube 19in center to top seat tube 22in center to center top tube A true one off! For those of you who saw it before, i sold it to a good friend, for safe keeping. As you can imagine, being a vintage bike dealer I'm not rolling in it ( ya cheap bastards!!) So I am reluctantly letting it go. I will gladly send more pics upon request. If you're serious about buying it you know what it is so please don't ask me for a million pics and then offer me $500😩.....it's bad enough I have to sell it. Anyone who's sold here knows what I'm talking about. The bike will be shipped through pirateship and insured for the full amount. If you are over seas and looking to beat the man, you will be ,solely liable for it, the moment it is shipped. Speaking of the man: for those of you who know me I will be offering a slight discount for the use of venmo, FF or zelle. For those of you who do not, please ask around. If payment is received in full ahead of time the insurance will be in the buyer name. For overseas paypal use there will be a 4% fee, added to the total before payment is made. Free shipping to the lower 48 Equivalent added to International Equivalent subtracted for local pickup Thanks!

What is the ask? If you want a nice riding commuter bike or city bike, it would be fine. My town bike is an 87 Prelude with upright bars, rack and panniers. An extremely comfortable ride for around town. Top tube rust over sprayed with an unmatched ( but close) blue paint. Bikes are for riding, in whatever venue works for the owner. They won’t last forever even hanging on the wall.

Are we done with the fixie craze? That's how I lost mine. Maybe theft incidence will be reduced as young folk age out of fixed gear bikes. 🤷‍♂️

AHH!! she dropped the price!! I was going to scavengethis bike for parts on the men's Superbe, but determined it's not worth the immense bad Karma to break up such a pristine example. She asked me if the $150 ask was too much, and I told her it's probably spot on for a women's frame in that condition with all the extras.

Maybe, these are actually track bikes IMO given their Schwinn and Paramount lineage, they are really nice up close and personal, especially this one.as far as I can see from here.

I believe specs from '76 were same in '74-'75, too.

Hi,
Any ideas on the model of the Raleigh? Interesting lugs, but that kickstand plate degrades it.

Lugs and fork crown suggest Competition to me. Kick stand is on a different bike.
