Actually you've all failed to meet the criteria. We meant Restoration as in the period of English history generally accepted to cover the reign of Charles II (1660-1685 for those who didn't pay attention in school).
Clearly not. It was deliberately open ended and as long as the nomination includes two images we intended to let most through to the poll. It is then up to the voter to decide which bike takes Bike of The Month based on all normal criteria people judge on (most use of the colour purple, is it a Kona, is the bike owned by a friend etc.) and
which the voter judges to be the best restoration.
A few other points
Two pics per entry only. If you have more please post up a thread in reader's bikes, add as many images as you want and link from here.
If the bike has already been entered in a Special Month it is not elligible. Does seem a little tough this rule on reflection, however it was put in place for an obvious reason.
We need two images this month, a before and after.
