They are both superb, but I'd prefer to stick with home grown machinery, and would pick the Raleigh.

Another vote for the Raleigh, but to be fair, I am biased!

It really is in brilliant condition, but is a smidgen too small for me.

Hope to see you at the Retro Ronde, whichever you choose.

3 - 2 still in favour of the K-M but still a while to go.

Hey mate to be honest I am very surprised to see that this hasn't been snapped up yet, it's very nice and I may be in touch.

What will be riding on the day?

If I am able to get over, I will probably be riding a Witcomb - I am restoring one for L'eroica.

Richard it's not your fault, they really should ban people from selling beautiful bikes.

I am actually winning a bike on ebay at the moment too as I was getting impatient waiting to hear back from the other seller, bad on my bank balance if i do win it but having plenty of choice is never a bad thing.

As far as hints go I can show you what else I have bought to wear...

It isn't actually a team replica bike but it is a very nice Raleigh and it will all look nice together on the day
