Well yes this Cunningham IS a real retro one. I scanned a old picture of Alice B. Toeclips from her younger days. See the Snake-belly tires and the frame and fork seams painted mate gray and black.

Pre-WTB rollercams. Has all Cunningham parts you can imagine. And it still rocks.


:shock: 8) Once again BP has made it an easy month for me.

Hoping that history doesn't repeat itself and see a Cunningham beaten into 2nd place by a Kona (Hot, Hei Hei or Ku) :roll:

I ABSOLUTELY agree: there's no way a Kona can beat a Cunningham. I hope the voters will be told by God, in Heaven "OK, we're going for a ride... you can have your Cinder Cone, Novekili will have his Cunningham"

Amusing stuff guys!

However, I do not agree, Whilst do I agree 7000 times over that a Cunningham is vastly superior to a Kona Hot/Sex Too/Hoochey Koochey Mamma or whatever (and I have voted as such)

Overriding results or weighting the voting would ruin the competition!

I guess sometimes lesser machines might win becasue of the heart/effort/innovation/skill/taste in the execution of the build rather than because it is from the elite? I don't have a problem with that, necessarilly

- This is an opinion, not an opening salvo in a war by the way!
