The low front end makes this a bit of a handful to ride. Nice paint though and it only weighs 19lbs :)

Love your style bat40a6, mixing retro frame/fork with modern parts is a nice metamorphose.

Some very nice bikes here, good effort to those who have entered.

Shame about the BS throughout the thread from the usual crew, spoils it somewhat I feel, only my opinion of course which is what all the other comments are, opinions.

Why does the K word generate this approach?

No need to reply to question thanks, just concentrate on the whole aim of the title, BOTM. If I wasn't so damn busy I may of put one of mine in, maybe next time!

A slightly disappointed, Ash.

MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!

I work for a Japanese company and its a standing joke with them that even a blind jap would know if a "ROUND EYE" walked into a room as we all smell of milk !... seems they don't farm cattle way out east and use very little dairy products as a result :lol:

lactose intolerance.. or correctly lactose tolerance is something we Europeans (and consequently wherever we settled, e.g. USA, Australia, ..) have. So we drink milk. Rest of the world doesn't so they don't drink milk. We mutated to allow it. There was a nice thing on TV, probably that Alice lady talking about it with some pretty maps.

Italy is one of them 50/50 countries.
