Lovely bike mate.

Cool! I love the 80's :D

I have another 84 Fat that is almost ready for public, different from the black 84 I entered before- that one has moved on.
But since this is a special month, I have always wanted my 88 Wicked Fat to get another crack at the botm comp since I've made a few improvements, all period correct. It got 12 votes during a normal month, with it's first build. let's see if it does better this time around, though competition is even tougher now.

Thought this was going to be an average BOTM - but the bar has been set sky high already. Loving every bike so far! :lol:

1988 Jamis Dakota Competition (build thread here... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... mis+dakota)

I couldn't decide which 88' Dakota to enter but the double U-brakes won out in the end :D

By the way, that Mt Tam is one of the nicest bikes I've ever seen having seen it in the 'flesh' at Mayhem last year. Gets my vote so far :wink:
