Nope. Be nice to see more entries but there you go.

Should've pulled my finger out and got this one built.

Come on, someone must have a classic ANC Halfords gas pipe special (or maybe the 753 'real thing')...Halfords was full of the damn things in 1987!

Halfords made a notoriously disastrous entry in the 1987 TdF. Not the riders' fault, team was run by some dodgy ex-copper. The manager's family also insisted on coming along for the whole tour, but his wife's dog died and one of the riders had to bury it in the hotel garden.
There's a great chapter about it in the book 'Roule Brittania', and I think there is a full length book just about that team somewhere.

Adrian Timmis is on this forum - he could enter the bike he rode in the 87 tour. You seen the thread?

As Mel hasn't entered one yet, I'll pad out this months entries with an ex-team 1990 Panasonic PR-6000 with full Dura Ace 7400/01.

Some nice detailing includes the 'not available to the public' extended seat tube (I utterly refute the suggestion of a local frame builder that they couldn't be bothered to mitre the tube).

I hope I can enter this one for this month. :D

My Koga Miyata FullPro with an almost complete Dura Ace 7400 group and the pretty red spiderpaint from 1992.

It is an ex Tulip team bike as would have been ridden by the Tulip-computer team in the 1992 Tour de France.

These special team bikes can be recognized by the chrome socks which are not present at the bikes you could buy at the store.
