#108 Joe Chance
1928 Harley-Davidson JD
Hi- My name is Joe Chance of Westphalia Iowa, & rider #108 in the 2020 Motorcycle Cannonball. I’m an auto body technician at Creative Concepts located in Harlan, IA. Fixing wrecked vehicles is what I do most of the time, but painting motorcycles is my passion.
Team Not A Chance includes me, my wife Trisha, Stepson Levi German, & friends Scott Peterson, Mark Brundige, Russ Vetter and Dean Boell.
The motorcycle is a 1928 Harley-Davidson JD, affectionately named “Shirley”. This will be our 2nd Cannonball, 2018 was our 1st. We had days when Shirley ran strong, days when we struggled, and days when she broke down. But we never gave up & made it to the finish! Many times, we asked fellow Cannonballers for advice or an extra part, & they were always happy and more than willing to help however they could.
Being part of the Motorcycle Cannonball has been one of the best times of my life. For the 2020 Cannonball we are going to step it up a notch as Trisha will be riding along in a sidecar! Our goal is the same in 2020 as it was in 2018, No matter what happens or how it ends we just have fun! And with a team of family, great friends and an abundance of faithful followers we will do just that! Go 108 Team Not a Chance!!!
