Some lovely bikes again this year. And some good photos too!

Love the Cunningham for starters. Sinnerman's Zinn and Lloyd are sweet and Woody's very clean Rocky looks very nice indeed.

Can't help being drawn towards Chowi's Berthoud though. From that great collection above, it's the one I'd like to own. It gets a big Gallic 'Oui' from me.

Well done to all entrants this year. Some great restorations.

Si

Voted :wink:

Some serious quality in this line up, with one particular bike really appealing to me more than the others, as I would love to own it (even though it would be a bit too small!)

Good luck to all involved 8)

Ah, t'is a glorious line-up!

Instead of my usual umming & ahhing and weighing up the teeny imperfections I've jumped straight in with what I think is a magnificent example of a particular moment in time - Mr Ship's Yeti looks as though it should be covered in dust from racing in Durango, it's what appeared totally alien, foreign and unachievable to me reading the magazines at the time and has stuck as an icon of the early days of racing 8)

Aren't they all stunners though? :D
