#108 Joe Chance

Westphalia, IA

1928 Harley-Davidson JD

Hi my name is Joe Chance of Westphalia Iowa and I am the writer of 108 in the 2021 motorcycle Cannonball. I’m an auto body technician at Creative concepts located in Harlan Iowa. 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, my stepsons Justin and Levi German, Scott Peterson, Mark Brundige, Russ Better, and Dean Boell.
The motorcycle is a 1928 Harley Davidson JD, officially named Shirley after Trish’s grandmother. This will be our second Cannonball, 2018 was our first. We had days when Shirley ran strong, days when we struggled, and days when she just plain broke down. (The sweep truck was Shirley’s best friend) But we never gave up and made it to the finish! Many times, we asked fellow cannonballers for advice and for an extra part, and they were always happy and more than willing to help however they possibly could.
Being part of the motorcycle Cannonball has been one of the best times of my life. For the 2021 Cannonball we are going to step it up a notch and Trisha will be riding along with me on a tandem seat. Our goal is the same in 2021 as it was in 2018, no matter what happens or how we end we will just have fun! And with a team of family great friends and an abundance of faithful followers we will do just that!
