Nominations now open for RBotM May 2017
Open Month

Competition is back after a brief and deliberate layoff last month.
Usual rules apply, mainly one entry per member, 2 photos if possible and a brief paragraph or so giving a description, a link to a build thread or readers ride thread always helps with giving people more details.
Nominations will be open until last day of the month. After which a five day poll will decide the winner. Full rules if needed can be found in the Wiki section, highlighted at the top of the page.

Thanks
Jamie

Go on then I'll start:

1990 Raleigh Castorama 753 Dynatech, the frame belonged to or was built for Jean-Claude Bagot who was one of the 1991 riders.
I've built it to Fignon spec as there are no pictures (that I can find) or info on JCB but plenty on Fignon. How ever it does carry JCB's name and number.

1979 Bianchi Super Leggera. Original paint, decals and pantographed components. I restitched the handlebar leather covers. This bike is from the era when Piaggio/Vespa owned Bianchi and it has a Piaggio/Vespa headbadge decal.

I will post my 1989 Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra "Team Stuttgart".

I first bought it as a frameset and built it up with an 8 speed Campagnolo Chorus (1994 or something) I had. Later I acquired an earlier (1992) C Record groupset so I changed it as this groupset was more "era correct". Recently I won an Olmo on a bidding site, not really knowing what I had won (the seller said it had "Shimano 600 and stuff" on it). I was kind of pleased when I picked up the Olmo and it seamed to have 3/4 of a Croce d' Aune groupset, including the Delta's (Croce d' Aune was the groupset this Team Stuttgart was sold with back in 1989).

So I finally switched all the parts and this is the final result.

If "open month" means I'm allowed to post more than one, I can help. ;-)

Open Month means that it is open to any member and machine, as long as that machine has not won RBotM before. If it has won RBotM previously then it is only eligible for themed months. For all competitions it is one entry per member. There's plenty of months to fit them all in ;)
