I'm going to put forward my Motobecane.
It's not trying to be a replica more of an homage to the decent Motobecanes. I like it on a number of levels...it's clean, un fussy and has a bit of prescence without being pretentious if that makes sense.
I have had it built up with bits off ebay/respray(I like orange)new saddle and tyres. It is an enjoyable bike to ride. Hope some of you guys can appreciate it like I do. (Bought it all tatty and stickered as a peugeot)

Thanks
Toomski
