About this 'Period Correct' thing.

Did anyone BITD ever keep their bike exactly as bought new anyhow?
I certainly didn't. :roll:
Things wear out or break. Sometimes bikes were sold with a few inferior parts to bring them in to a particular price catagory - most folk upgraded these parts (usually with more recent parts).

Let's not make the retrobike scene like the concourse car scene!
More like the retro car scene :!:

I voted for the Steve Potts, its immaculate but still has a lot of soul. Yeah it looks a bit odd, not your standard MTB but its like the missing link, its a great example of how MTB's developed. I love it.

Defenately the RC100... best looking bike I have seen in here so far (well, since my Rascal isn't done yet hehehe), awesome colour scheme and nice Mavic parts. I just love it how the "fork-headset-stem-handlebar" setup is done.

I'm pretty sure i'll vote for the RC100, leaving it 'til the end of the month to vote though.

Love it love it love it!
Does make me a bit gutted I didn't bid higher on it though!

The drag bars are an idea worth stealing... :wink:
