We are now taking nominations for the June 2011 Bike of The Month contest. Normal month this month so anything goes.

Rules in the FAQ here.

Don't forget the winner will receive a subscription to MBR magazine and will have their bike in the magazine! So get polishing and get those entries in 8)

Second and third will receive a set of retrobike stickers 8)

Once again we will be running the BoTM poll 'blind'.

Well, someone has got to be the first! This one is finished now, so might as well nominate it this month!

My 1987 Fisher Montare! All original parts!

I really love the look of it, and surprise: it rides great!

I think mine fits in this month!
1992 GT Tequesta - restored from a wreck and rebuilt to the spec I had in 1992 including hand repainting the frameset decals and paint.
My first restoration. :-D

OK, I'm going to submit this. I appreciate it's not had any great restoration on it and it may in fact have won before with a previous owner :oops: . But I'm going to chance my arm if thats OK :D

I agree. very elegant.... but I can't for the life of me figure out how you got it to stand up all by itself for that second photo??


ooooh hold on... I think I see a tiny little stick hidden in the weeds back by the rear axle.
