After a month off BoTM is back once again for your delectation. Think you know the drill now.

Please see slightly updated rules here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/wiki/BoTM_Rules , especially note the first. Useful if you can structure your nomination as follows
:arrow: username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Lavadome
:arrow: Image(s)
:arrow: Finally please include a link to your machine in the relevant Reader's Bikes section. If you don't have an existing post now is the time to add one with as much detail as you like!
:arrow: Limiting entries to 15 this month. When we have 15 the poll will go up.

Normal month for April 2015. Given the post date was considering a 'gas pipe' special where only bikes made from the finest mild steel were allowed - extra credit for those welded in the Midlands. However just to be clear this is a normal month..

Three archive entries from here... 1. Fracked Ritchey 2. Gas men of this parish doing what they do 3. Full gas - Superstrong propelling the Guvnor's Bristolian gaspipe... all at Mayhem.

I heart BoTM.

Raidan73's 1990 Brodie Sovereign

The competition is pretty stiff already but here's my entry. The paintwork won't win any beauty contests but I've built this to be a regular rider. Link to the build thread here
