Apologies for the delay in getting this up. Another regular competition so anyone can enter their new old builds.

Useful for the poll if you can structure your nomination as follows:

username's Year Manufacturer Model , e.g. John's 1990 Kona Lavadome
Image(s) MAXIMUM OF 2
Finally please include a link to your machine in the relevant Reader's Bikes section. If you don't have an existing post now is the time to add one with as much detail as you like!

Nominations thread will run for the entire month. Entries submitted after August 30th will not be counted. The poll will go up shortly after the nominations close and will run for a week.

Interesting opening entry: that's a fine example of a young daughter's retrobike that I'm sure she will enjoy 8)!
I hope she'll do that elsewhere than the site at which you photographed that purple beast though.. ;)
