My choice was down to 2 or 3....until this vision appeared!

1981/2 Cunningham Indian

Don't see how that CAN be bested.

In theory you should be right, but I can see the drop bars and red tyres working against it. Speculating of course but as a drop bar fan and having followed our drop bar thread I can see how opinion is divided. I think those red tyres suck but this is were I find out that CC dyed those personally with his blood as he hand carved the tread.

I love that Indian, and I love the red tires. What brand are they, and are they from that period or re-issue?

Lol - it is a crowded club! :P

The tires are Cyclepro Snakebellys and are period correct. Sadly they are BMX cruiser tires which means they are a fortune. I have a yellow set for my Golden Breezer that I will build up one of these days. I think the red works on this bike (and echos the red tires Jacquie Phelan ran on her race Cunningham Otto, which were also snakebellies.)

I thought it would be an easy choice with Kai´s Tinker replica, but with the new bushpigs entry...
Another hard month, that´s great ;)

Nice!
Yes, all the red tires from those years would've been bmx cruisers, I imagine, and as such cost a ton now. I picked up a 1983 Fat Chance, and then bought a set of red bmx 26x2.125 from that era, but like the thread pattern on your set better. Thanks

Found a pic of that one:
