Bought for approx £70-80 (i partexed it against two helmets) :wink: , in fairness the transmission was screwed, the seatpin seized in and the stays were rusting.
Resprayed it and rebuilt with SS and some stuff kicking about, should possibly scrape in below £150.

Now has red Onza bar ends if that helps :wink:

For me it has to be the Evans. It has already been one of my fave's in the regular BOTM. Additional bonus points for that ridiculous pricepoint :wink:

Despite the fact the Rocky should've won looks like the Evans has taken it :D
