I will put one here as motivation for others to join in and post some pictures.
In the interests of impartiality I do not enter the comp any more :)

While unlike poor Peachy above :wink: I have had a great many rides and adventures this summer on my retro and modern bikes but one of my favourite weekends will have to be last weekend with the Jack Taylor group, from riding to sitting around socializing, picking up another frame on the way, great Yorkshire weather and best of all, spending time in the company of Ken Taylor. A summer weekend to stand out.

Yeah my vote would go to the two Taylors as well...

So my first ever entry...

A mid 80s Raleigh masquerading as an end of 70s team bike with a mixture of Shimano Dura Ace, Crane and 600.

Built in the day last Friday to take part in a retro subversion of the Triathlon Relay championships where it is pictured surrounded by soulless carbon mega-bikes!

More waffle and pictures here. viewtopic.php?f=23&t=402284
