Decided to withdraw mine as stated in OP, as I want to wait till I have the right brake levers and grips.... Still now you've seen it at least.


So glad I did. Someone just offered me a pair of Icarus levers!

I'll throw out my oddball RekTek(with an almost-complete Syncros group) . A link to the build thread is in my sig.
I wanted to wait to submit this for BoTM until I'd actually ridden it. These two shots were taken in the morning before heading off to a vintage/retro ride where it got a thorough shake down.... so much so... that I actually lost a chainring bolt :cry:

Sure is Missy's, I can track it back to the day John Parker gave it away (Parker confirmed this).

Best bit is the dent in the top tube, you just know Missy was cursing when this would have happened :) Gives it some character.

A few non production details in the frame, but I'll save that for another time.

Even if it is, (provenance and history aside) it's not the nicest bike posted in the thread so far. IMHO. Purple ano was never my thing though. Even BITD.

Me neither.... didn't like it then, and I don't like it now, but the heritage more than compensates for that IMO.....

To my mind, this is BoTM, not Favourite Bike as a Youngster or some such
If that Breezer was entered, it would most likely get voted unanimously, despite being considerably less attractive than even a Raleigh Montage

Anyway, its not for debate here as The Boys on the Board will wrap our knuckles, and everyone votes on their own criteria and preferences
