Love the before and after idea, however could we wait another month or two to allow me to finish my Orange....getting there but still needs a respray! :) ....either that or I need to wait for you to run another penny pinchers edition for it.

What about ignoring the material products that go into the 'making of the bike' and have a BOTM based on 'best history' or best 'back story'.

Only by leaving the material world behind, can we truly achieve a higher state of retro.

How about the 'bought it complete of ebay- of the month'
or the 'I never ride it but here it is- of the month'

Sorry, feeling cynical. :oops:

Only photos of rider in at least a period jersy and bike are eligible?

Bonus points for a tasteful model draped across your steed in period kit??

I think the back sory idea is great and love the quote above - I'm sure there is a joke about the sound of one hand clapping here somewhere (note to self: rewatch The Karate Kid)
