Without getting too off-topic, I take it my saddle angle here would incur the displeasure of the 'style police' too no doubt.

Of course! This is a beauty contest. On the other hand, at least it's in keeping with the period of the bike, unlike the nylon toestraps. I'd definitely knock off points for the untrimmed mudguard stays as well!

This is much more fun than the mtBOTM, it's all just glittery photo's there and details are all lost in brand/person loyalty.

I quite enjoy the ripping apart comments, they have put 'in my opinion and it should be taken as that'. Its not mine and doubt the rider cares.

Nice to see how others think and see when they look at a bike.

Thanks to everyone that voted for my bike well pleased, I was worried by the Chris Chance especially the photography that was awesome, and Old neds stead got me slightly nervous one of the closest three way contests so far seen on rbotm.

Thanks Again

Tim

Better late than sorry. To make in more in the era it belongs.
a.) Other rear mech Shimano 105 due to bigger freewheel (28t.)
b.) Pedals, no more Looks but pedals with toeclips and new straps including strapends
c.) Tressostar bartape and older type ends.
d.) Sachs-Huret ''computer'' on the wheel. instead of an electronic one.
