Hmm... I have a week to do my Concorde build... I'd better get a digit remover.

Is that a European Concorde? Maybe a Dutch owned, even Italian built in some cases machine?
You know what I'm saying here in a subtle way ;)

It has a little flag in green, white and red on the top tube. I'm thinking it might be Mexican...

Then again, it also has stickers on it that say "Columbus"... so maybe that means it was made in Ohio?

Nice, but it sounds, er, European

Just a thought

I think it's the title, I read it as basically not UK bikes, and a cheeky Euro bikes are still allowed.
Possibly the use of non as that is just a missing hyphen from UK
I.e. it reads, non-UK and European bikes, to me.

I read it as Non UK and European, meaning nothing from UK or Europe, :)
Not that it matters as now it only has a couple of hours to go.
Hold onto those European and Italian/Mexican machines though as next month may just be another themed month as there must be a RBotM Brexit battle looming, thinking that it might be a European and UK only comp. What's peoples thoughts on that? Too soon? :)
