Aaagggghhhhh

I just couldn't help myself it had to be the Potts. There was a part of me that tried not to vote for it simply because it's the easy choice in some respects but after going through the list numerous times I always stopped that bit longer to admire it. I just want to ride it. 8)

Well for me its the 1994 Empella Team this month. The no nonsense look of a pure racer makes it the one I'd like to ride/own the most 8)

Easy one for me this month. Mark's 'Wildthing' is one of the best builds I've watched since finding this site.
Fantastic attention to detail and something very original 8)

That Potts looks fantastic! Only problem for me is the fact it looks like a eighties bike to me, but it is from 1994!?!
Not sure yet what to vote! :cry:

If I already had 10 posts, I would have voted for the Alpinestars. I simply adore the Cro-Megas (and especially in such a lovely setting).
