As it's a riders month I have picked an action shot. No suprise I've gone for boy"O"boy's 'O' as I have often stated how much I like the build and think it's a great shot. Can't decide if that look's 'buzzin' or 'oh sh*t'! :lol:


Cheers brock..... definately 'buzzin'!! - it's the 'unfortunate' race face that make's me look like i'm cack'in myself!! :lol:

My vote has to go to another East Anglian rider.... Lou74's funk.
Having ridden it, it had a couple of 'issues' :lol: :lol: .... but that 'totally funked' patina and history behind it make it all the more 'special'

Oh I can't decide. It has to be one of the bikes I'd like to own- problem is that accounts for quite a few. Love the Overburys, the WTBs and the Timberwolf for starters......

I need to sleep on it a little longer. Some cool bikes this month made even better by the fact they get riden. And that's what it's really all about.
Another strong month- well done to all concerned :wink:

Riders are my fave...

The garage queens are nice to look at, but a well-ridden bike dipped in a bit of dirt and water really makes my heart beat faster.


My sentiments exactly. It was between Lou and P20, with Lou getting the nod.

Here's a link back to the original nominations:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=107791

One or two of the motion pictures don't really do justice to the bikes.

I think I'm going to need a day or two to decide...

Good idea , i was thinking the same thing, i know that it would of been full of lots of photos but maybe it would have made more sense having a photo of it being ridden and one of the bike . Saying that it is going to be a close thing and i think it will go to the wire ! Thanks to those that have voted for mine aswell .

1. Rich's Pace F1 - Looks right in white...
2. supremate's 1994 Yeti ARC - very cool frame
3. RockiMtn's Cirrus - would love to try that setup with Amp fork and AT-2 bars

Love the Phoenix bikes and the Wicked, but I have to go with:
Ductape's Ritchey Timberwolf
