BY popular demand, I am offering up my Bob Jackson Short Wheelbase tandem up as a candidate for this month. You can see a few extra photos here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 49f2e506f3

The bike even has the official Reynolds respray decal as I had it repainted in 1984. The fade paint job done by one of my shopmates has held up really well.

As a recent arrival on the site I was going to steer clear of this for a while, however, since it is rBoTM here goes!

This bike was built for me from new and it started out with Shimano 600 equipment but through from 1989 to 1991 I upgraded most of the groupset to 7402 Dura Ace. More recently I have managed to obtain some NOS Dura Ace items to make further improvements.

Only concessions to modernity normally fitted are for safety and to gather training information (Cateye light and Computer mounts - I have some of my best training rides at night), these have been removed for the two pictures here. The rims fitted at the last wheel rebuild are modern but retro, I could refit the original saddle but need the comfort!
