As I had to pull the Saracen as I couldn't get the decals I needed I have decided to put in my 1989 Courier Comp. This is a bit of a retro mod as it's wearing the full Mountain LX group rather than the Mountain LX and Exage Country mix that it came with, which apart from the brake levers (even these aren't too bad) is pretty decent kit. This is also the rarer U-brake version.

Those old Saracens are cool 8)

I think you are only allowed to enter one bike though (and only 2 photo's)

The black one looks classy but I always think that the smaller frame sizes look better (although not many small frames about in those days). For the purpose of BOTM I think the amber wall tyres and Brooks saddle should go on whichever one you enter :D

Thanks Raidan, in that case I'll enter my 21" black and gold Conquest which is nearly restored. Will take some photos next weekend. Cheers and thanks for your help
