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 ;)

I know, I know... I was just joking. ;-)

Hi guys
Here's a couple of pics of my latest build. It's a 531c (not an SBDU) which I've just completed as my Eroica ride

Some really beautiful entries this month, so will again be a hard one to call, let alone pick only one to vote for.
Times running out so if anyone's thinking of entering then best do it soon.

Quick late entry late 70's or early 80's not 100% certain on age . Shorter Rochford owned and raced by its original owner Steve Wykes .

Got some nice bits and some great detail touches like first gen Dura ace calipers , drilled Huret rear mech etc etc

Any reason for the rather odd placing of the shorter decals?

I like that Shorter, very much.

The decals lower down on the tube avoid them getting rubbed by the gear changing hands - possibly.
