Absolutely, was just about to say that I like the bike but LOVE the expression!



Really great entries already, will be interesting to see how the 'in use' photos affect the voting.

Never before has an expression of such exhilaration been seen on such a flat piece of ground.

Special month, special bike (to me anyway)

Auld Faithful. The one I could never sell. The bike that has taken me on many a RetroBike adventure. Cut Gate, BDW, Yorkshire Moors, Seven Stanes, 3 Tribes.... always a pleasure to ride and has never let me down. 23 years old and still on its original brake cables- only the tyres and saddle have been changed since it left Fat City all those years ago.

@Sinnett177 think thisi s the third time the Raleigh has been entered so sadly I'll not be able to put it to the poll. It has also won a BoTM, maybe we'll stick in a rule for that.

@Yo-Eddy we ask all bikes bike owned by rb members. Do you still own the grove?

Brilliant, and the woman with the hand to her mouth in shock. :lol: :lol:


Thanks , i must admit it's one of my best photos , i used to love the Pipeline at Newnham . I remember one year doing a BMBF race there i dropped my chain at the start on the climb up before the pipeline , i fell to the back of the pack . With the rumble of my disc drive i flew down the outside just missing the deadly tree at the bottom and passing about 30 people in the process !

Thanks for noticing. I have got the proper rear brake since the photo. Only thing post 84 on it now are the tires from later in the decade and those awful grips. I need to put an order in at First Flight for some of their repop foamie grips.

I really like this thread because it is putting faces to names to bikes.

Sorry Longy, you still have to own the bike to enter.
