Now taking nominations for the April 23013 Bike of The Month contest. Bit late up this month, apologies. Decided to go for a normal month so anything goes :)

Please see slightly updated rules here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/wiki/BoTM_Rules , especially note the first. Useful if you can structure your nomination as follows
:arrow: username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Fire Mountain
:arrow: Image(s)
:arrow: Finally please include a link to your machine in the relevant Reader's Bikes section. If you don't have an existing post now is the time to add one with as much detail as you like!

hers my nomination

Biglev's Breezer mk1 replica 2013 (faux 1976/7)

It stirred my heart when I saw it on here on a thread and I spend the next 2 years researching, finding parts, building components and making the frame. Loads of toil has gone into this mainly for my own enjoyment and she rides well so not a wall hanger.

Oof! Stunning. Probably best you got that in early: it's going to be a hard month for the rest in my eyes.

crowned forks, cow horns and brooks saddles are not everyone's bag.

I am sure a nice Trimble, Ritchey, Mantis, Yates, Roberts, Lloyd, Yeti, Kestrel, Klein, Titan, Alpine star, Overbury, Highpath, Cunningham to name but a few could all trump that with ease. I have epically failed over the last 6 years to win this again so I know any nicely turned our bike can with this. I don't mind who wins as look and there are some nice bikes on show. So show us you metal (or carbon)....well as long as i don't come last again :¬)

Isn't this just a modern bike shaped like a vintage one?

think they are over here in the UK :roll: They are put together well, and seem to look awesome with all the mid 90 trick bits, i remember seeing a review of a Dagger on test in MBA 05-96 and that was fully tracked out as well 8)
