A great month with a very diverse, first class field of a massive 25 entries vying for your votes for RBotM November.
Poll goes up for 5 days and you have one vote :D
A big thank you! for everyone getting behind this, getting entries in and for generally supporting trying to bring back some enthusiasm for it.
I especially liked that over 11 pages, everyone was helpful and positive with no negativity or bitchin. hard not to be happy and positive with page after page of great British machines like this on show. :D
Best of Luck to everyone :)

Wow, definitely the best line up I can remember.
Usually I know straight away who's getting my vote but will have to give it some thought.

+1. Could spend all day thinking about it. In the end, I just took the plunge and went for it.

Hi mate
Selection buttons are fine here on my work computer.
I did just have someone on the PotM poll tell me they couldn't use the poll either. They cant highlight anything, I wonder if they aren't seeing the buttons.

I like the fact that as well pristine original examples we have a couple that have been rescued from the skip, not that you can tell and my own favourite part, is that there are three Hobbs entered :D Now I don't think I have seen that before in any comp.
Also everyone has been pretty complimentary with the comments really.

Very difficult but Neil the wheels Carlton gets my vote.
But I've got to give a honorary mentions to the 1972 Dave Russell, 1947 Hobbs Blue Riband, 1947 Norman Fay,
Ian May and the 1985 Langsett. Modern'ish wheel sets were in evidence though with some of the bikes this month :?
