    Bike OF the Year – 2007 – Rumpfy’s Raleigh Tomac Replica..

    January 18th, 2008

    What a machine!

    So, what do you do if you come across a picture of Tomac flying around on his iconic Raleigh ?? Simple, you spend many years and a lot of $$$$ to make one of your own, down to the mismatch tyres.. It was given a run for it’s money by Joe’s Yo but the Raleigh is a worthy winner and BOTY will be going Stateside (along with a small prize yet to be decided)

    Eric, we at Retrobike.Co.UK salute you !! Next year you have to ride it over here at an event of our choosing, OK ??
