Darn,
I just wanted to express my definition of Restore. Didn't mean to reset the whole poll.
Sorry guys.

I think there was an "error" somewhere.

The theme of this months BOTM is "Restoration", I doubt many people will bear this in mind when voting and simply vote for the bike they like best, and this being a retro MTB forum it'll probably be the Koski. A great bike, but not the best "restoration" in my opinion.
The Elgin doesn't really count as a MTB in my book, although the work done to the frame is exemplary.
There are some fantastic entries this month though, I particularly like the 'Dale, and the Orbit is up there too, I would have voted for the Lobo but it's a later than '97 frame isn't it? shame that.

I think restoration is sad. I have bikes in storage all over the place and when I am lucky I get to take them out on rides. I hate having to re-store them.

Er, sorry if the votes dissapeared. I'd forgotten an option and added it - on the old board this didn't reset the votes. On the new quite possibly, will have to look into it.

The vote is visible, thanks to those who have made me aware. I will update this at some point.

The Orbit for me this month.

There's probably some other bikes I prefer but I don't think a picture of a frame followed by a picture of the same frame, cleaned up and with parts bolted on is really in the spirit of this months poll.

The Orbit gets it becausae the first pic has all the old rusty, broken parts hanging off a snotty frame and then the second is a Swan. Very nice.
