Tempted to throw in my '93 Alu O - bought as a frame back then - built up as I could afford the bits - and still built with pretty much the same parts as it had then.
If I can be fagged to take some pics over the weekend...

I am just waiting for someone with a nice Muddy Fox Alu Team 91/92 to enter to silence all the muddy detractors :wink: :lol:

If I had not so stupidly sold mine it would be in here already :oops: :facepalm: :facepalm:

A better combination would have been Saracen, Muddy Fox and Raleigh given these were mostly entry level bikes and would have been those of our young years.



You mean B.O.T.M should revolve around the trusty but badly neglected steeds we did Paper rounds on :shock:

Extra marks for Buckled wheels and rusty chains ?? 8)



Why not? I suppose it depends on wether retro bike means retro bike or who can afford the oldest most exspensive bike whilst wearing a "I am special badge". To my mind there is a place for all and many are the very bikes at the entry point that got us infactuated and poor whilst using the forum.

Nothing embarrasing about your bike origins if you genuinely like two wheels instead of labels

There once was an ugly ducking, with feathers all stubby and braaaan. :lol:

But I love it. Got me back on a bike after 25 years.
