After being somewhat disappointed with the bikes offered up in last month's poll, where they were all what I would determine "old used bikes" rather than classics, this month I am offering up a 1953 Marastoni with virtually all original componentry. Original paint, chrome and decals throughout and from what I can tell all the original components too, apart from the tyres, bar wrap and one brake cable. If you want to see more photos, please go to this link:

Indeed a nice classic. Which was far ahead for his era, due to the rear brake cable through the toptube. The covers however on the Universal brakes are from a little bit later, I think according to its form. This one is already one of my favorites not even knowing what will be next... :D

My Dad forgot he had this 1954 Flying Scot frame lying up in his loft, so when it was 'discovered' during a clear out it was a case of it heading for the 'tip' or building it into a usable 'vintage' road bike, so i saved it from the bin and rebuilt it. It was found with very early Cinelli bars + stem then i fitted 70's campagnolo nuovo record components and modolo brakes as i struggled to find original 50's components. It rides beautifully.

I guess that it comes down to where your particular passions lie - as my interests are more late 70s to early 90s I thought that last months entrants were top class!

Here's to looking forward to some good diversity this month.
