Rob's Kilauea for me. So clean. If my Cinder Cone build turns out half as good, i'll be chuffed to bits.

At the risk of exciting Lid to more amusingly cutting wit and well expressed (!) contempt, few of these really raise my enthusiasm - I guess because, unlike most on here, the stories and the work behind then don't figure in my choice. Not that I don't appreciate all the effort, rather that it doesn't impact on my view of the finished bike.

Only the Dagger and the Brodie Sovereign make me think "I'd quite like one of those"..... and the latter just takes it.

Thanks very much!

I was tempted to go down the anodised route but once the frame was resprayed with its lovely sparkly metallic paint and I had the NOS bits all in silver and black I didn't want to bling it up all of a sudden. It looks way better in real life and I can't believe how good it looks

This is the first time I've voted, and I've gone for the 'Breezer' for the same reasons as other people have mentioned. This is also just my opinion, but it's one of the few on the list that I think would be a laugh to ride. Foot out flat out!
