Can't find much when I looked it up but I think you have it misnamed? Seems like it was from a small builder named Chris Chance, who started Fat City bikes.

Got a link or pictures? This could easily be worth $460.

A Chris Chance bicycle is worth $460 unless it is completely destroyed (rust, dents etc)

Is this a road bike or a mountain bike

I thought so too. Itís a road bike. The listing provides no info other than price. Iíve reached out to the seller. Waiting to hear back.
Iíve attached the only picture provided in the listing.
sorry - having a little trouble doing so from my cell.
thanks!

Chris Chance road bike = early progenitor of Indy Fab road bikes. I have three IF's, and they're all superb. $460 could be a steal if that's what you're looking for.
