RBotM August 2018 - Theme Month 1960 - 1979 !!!
Nominate Now!


Welcome back to the next instalment of our time period theme months.
This month we are going back, way way back to 1960 through to 1979!
So if your bicycle fits into this very broad and very changeable time period then get it cleaned, polished, get a photo and post it up. Share what you have and lets see if we can make this a huge month. I say this as I think that these years are really well represented on Retrobike and also it's a period of so much change and diversity.

A few issues with the last themed month so I will ask everyone to try and keep it within this time period for frame and components. The odd piece out of date is fine but the majority should be based within this time. It's not a show and shine classic bike show but it's also not a retromod type comp. It will hopefully be a easy going place to show off what you've been riding and building.

Thanks
Jamie

Just to bag my spot!

Claud Butler 1961 Super Coureur

Live build thread here; 1961 Claud Butler Super Coureur #9081 (Entente cordiale)

Updated photo, in all her morning glory! Few minor adjustments still required after I’ve riden the bike, and the cheap seat will be replaced by a royal blue Brooks B17 I just grabbed this morning on the bay.
