aaaand heres my gt xcr! im not entirely sure of what year and model it is, but, when i was given the frame, it had grooves in it (that almost looked like bora marks in wood) from its exposure to rain. so i built it up to what it is now. in heinzsight, i really shouldve polished the alu instead of spraying it matte black (naughty me)

Nice GT mate but I think it's a fair bit newer than 1997 which is the cut off for this competition. I think you've done a good job on it - looks good - just needs some decals on it to finish it off. You should be proud of the job you've done.

I love your Pace!!! Awesome build, and I've never seen that front hub before. Really cool.

Thanks for all the nice comments, and for those reminding me about the seat, I really have tried to grow my arms a little longer but no joy to date. :oops:

Some stunning bikes though already and no doubt more to follow so good luck to all.

Steve your Rocky looks about my size :wink:

Thanks mate, I'd love a go on her especially seeing how you've been smitten with everything Rocky since that Blizzard. Anyway it looks bloody lovely with those wheels, I wouldn't be too p***ed about missing the others. :wink:

FFS, no bandwagon too slow with the doctored old photos of dead, old guys, with the pithy, ye olde speak.

I'd rather a facepalm emoticon than this fad...

Can we have an amnesty? Perhaps a special thread or room where people can get them out of their system?

Great.

As you were.
