Oh you are silly Roadking. I just changed my mind and decided not to enter. Unfortunately you can’t delete a post.
Instead of casting aspersions, why not join in and enter something yourself?


The use of the idiom I suggest is incorrect: I was not suggesting you lacked integrity, nor was I criticising your character - I merely suggested you were being sneaky (humour), and wouldn't have sneaky folk under my command.

As i am silly (aspersion cast) it would be unwise to enter the competition: plus my bicycles are all a little left field for RB - perhaps not the Raleighs.

Hopefully just a temporary pause otherwise might just delete a few of the non relevant posts.

So, to get back to bikes, here’s my Majestic (again) now finally finished…honest!
Proper Sella Italia Anatomic (found and restored – not bought) and some Dia-compe/Weinmann combination levers with black Weinmann half hoods and black cable outers, oh, almost forgot, the "square" version of Ever-ready rear lamp

I will chuck another Claud Butler into the mix. 1950's fixed wheel .My first project before I joined RB . I first thought it was an Avant Coureur frame set , but later learnt it was a New All Rounder frame according to its date . The same lugs appeared on both models as I understand things.

Very nice, & it’s usually the Carlton’s that do the ganging up!
Do you have a build thread?
