Ductape's 1981 Ritchey (Mountainbikes) "Big Red":

My original grail bike, and A bike with a lot of historical significance; I have been working on Big Red for a few years.

It all finally came together this month and I am stoked with the results:

Out for a shake down cruise with the dog:

Navigating the snake pit at the 25th annual Keyesville classic:

Please take the time to see the build thread with lots of pictures here:

giom6's 1992 Saracen Kili Pro

I don't think this has got much of a chance looking at the other nominations, but its worth a punt :)

Took nearly 18 months to put together but is 99% original spec including the full DX groupset, Magura Hydrostops, Ritchey Wheels, Onza bar ends and the Saracen toeclips and straps.
