British ... hmm ... Darn, only Swiss and German bikes here right now, and all using Japanese parts and German or American tyres.



However ...

My Sbike 728's handlebar spent nearly 20 years in the cellar of a British bike shop. Does that count? I think that's a fair interpretation considering the rules for British Citizenship.

Quote:
If you are over 18 and have been living in the United Kingdom for the last five years, you may be able to apply for naturalisation.


Following that reasoning, my handlebar is British since 2010, so the bike should be eligible.

:lol:

I have a middleburn crank and chainrings...but they have bad teeth. Can I mount them on a Fat Chance with a Union Jack Sticker and call it an entry?

This is going to be a good month!

I'll throw my 1990 Overbury's Pioneer to the wolves.
Last time it didn't get a single vote, but that was my fault for using crappy pics.
This bike had never seen a muddy day when I picked it up, and it's as it left the shop in Bristol in 1990.

Gratuitous beach shot
