It's a shame the La Perle doesn't quite meet the rules- it's gorgeous!!

However, my no.2 choice now has a vote :)

I too would have liked to see the La Perle as a candidate.

Apart from the missing pedals and cock-eyed saddle on the Pinarello that is about to be restored, all bikes this month are showing off very classical set-ups. Hopefully the Pinarello will be displayed once more after it has been restored. It could then become a real looker...

The Klein while technically interesting, in my eyes just can't keep up with aesthetic appeal of the other bikes this month. The massive proportions of the tubing and most importantly the disconnect of the size of the rear drop-outs compared to the front, makes for a somewhat clunky-looking bike, which is further emphasized by the matte paint.

In the end my vote went to one of the British bikes.

Pitty for the ''La Perle'', marvoulous bike. Except for rule #7 ??? Please were can I find the complete set of rules?
For now, I doubth between the Panasonic and the Raleigh. Somewhere the brake calipers does not match to my opnion to this era.

Tricky choice here, quite liking the super clean Caygill although the Raleigh also tempts. More pondering.....
