But would you not jump straight on and ride that 23 year old Ms Welch?

I know.....I would

To carry on the UK vs USA theme, here is my Claud Butler Cape Wrath.

This is another one of my 'box fresh' bikes. Bought new from Mike Cookson Cylcles in Oldham in 1990. It was picked up complete with the original BLT lights front and rear. All original, all working and never turned a wheel.

I know, I should get out and ride it but I have enough other retrobikes in the stable to keep me mobile. It just seems so rude to now ride this when it is in this box fresh condition. A little like finding a 23 year old Racquel Welch hiding in your wardrobe.....

Now that totally contradicts my point and also sounds just a little bit weird.

Damn! I eagerly clicked on those links hoping to see a (naked) 23 year old Raquel Welch fresh from hibernation in your wardrobe.

Beautiful bike by the way and another extra strong entry flying the flag and I do like this GB vs USA theme!

Out of curiosity, why did you withdraw your bike from entry ?

Rule 12
One bike per user per month - don't be greedy


I already have the Marin Team Ti in this month so it's December BOTM for Claud.
