WOW! I don't normally vote or post a comment, but based on loads of comments about contributing (or NOT as in my case) on other threads I thought I'd join the party...

Schwinn got my vote due to detail of the build (and I have a soft-spot as I own the ex-Gould Peugeot that has past through a few hands on here)

1984 Fat Chance got the other as I love these ERA bikes where components were nabbed from BMX and touring bikes before the emergence of mass-produced MTB goodies

However it was a tough one as I love all the bikes this month. Well done everyone! :lol:

Votes the same as 27motorhead and for exactly the same reasons.
The Schwinn for the enormous amount of work and eye for detail, and the fact that it's an underdog brand.
And the Fat because I just love the early ones, so damn cool!

I would like to point out (totally objective, of course :wink: ) that only one bike has mud on it's tires.

Great result for the Schwinn and the runner up Fox too.

Wow!

Thanks to those who voted for my labour of love - now I can die a happy man....or at least give myself the luxury of a Whisky on a Sunday night before a work day 8)

Some nice bikes this month!

Cheers, Alec
