Just a normal month for November. Hopefully we’ll get some nice entries from people who have recently finished builds that didn’t qualify for last months splatter and fade theme.

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!

Nominations thread will run for the entire month. Entries submitted after November 30th will not be counted. The poll will go up shortly after the nominations close and will run for a week.

Very nice! Am I correct in thinking it's a rebadged Raleigh Special Products Torus, making it ultra rare and arguably even cooler than a Torus.

I was led to believe that both Gazelle and Raleigh Ti frames are of similar Russian descent..

Old photos, but it looks the same by now.

Enjoy the contest,
