The first in what looks to be an ongoing theme of recreating the bikes I lusted after as a yoof but couldn't afford.... 1997 Corima Cougar.

Ex Team GB sprint frame which was a bit beaten up, resprayed to celebrate Boardmans 1994 hour record bike... but with the different front end/bar setup... making it actually useable. Recreating the 4 spoke decals was the most 'entertaining' bit, having to do so from scratch, Corima having no digital record of them.

Look sprint bars the only modern addition... because they look so right. And still french.

Weighs a ton, but once up to speed a stunning thing on the track. And gets way more comments than anything else I've ridden - the kids all thinking its brand new, not 1/4 century old tech!
