Late as ever I’m afraid (I’ll be looking to do something about that soon) but here’s May! Normal month with a theme for June (suggestions welcomed as always).

Useful for the poll if you can structure your nomination as follows:

username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Lavadome
Image(s) MAXIMUM OF 2
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!

12 entry maximum this month. Nominations thread will run for the entire month OR until the maximum number of entries is reached - whichever happens first. The poll will go up shortly after the nominations close and will run for a week.

Hello, here comes my oldest one

Noka78s Ritchey Mt. Tam 1983 21"

All the parts are original, except of the tires. Has a fillet brazed twinstrut and all of the first gen. Shimano XT 'deerhead' and the rare Ukai rims.
This beauty comes from the Rogue Valley Collection in the last year - very happy about this catch :)

Cheers Norman
