Unless its broken and therefore only suitable for wall art, then get it built and ride it. The MK1 Raven is the only bike i regret selling. They also look much better as a complete bike.
All my own opinion of course :wink:

I love the idea of wall art bikes, knackered or not. I always find it a bit sad that the only time I see some of my bikes is when I open the 'bike room' to either fettle or to choose one to ride. Having one on the wall would give a daily pleasure boost I reckon, although a Fat Ti is not really in keeping with the decor of a 19th century country cottage.....

Nice idea!

I agree with you Pete, my love of bikes does help to generate enthusiasm to go into my shed on these cold damp nights.
The wife took pity on me and allowed me to fettle my RTS is the nice warm conservatory last night, and every time I went into the kitchen I kept opening the door to the conservatory to have a peek at it! :lol:
Sad I know; but normally I only see the bikes when I'm riding, fettling or washing them :lol:
I think bike art could work on this basis then :wink:

I've several bikes but I've little time to ride them and for my daily ride I often prefer modern bikes...
Some frames are for me special and part of the MTB history so, this is my tribute to them!
