Now taking nominations for December 2009. It's a 'normal' month so anything goes. Guidelines here, please take time to read them > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8326. Especially the bit about it being FUN and only having TWO pics.

Bring it :D

Let’s jump in the arena ! lets be the first so I won't be depressed by competing treasures :shock:

An American Breezer Lightning emigrated in France

first year with V Brakes in the catalog so the cantilevers "ayatollahs" can't complain :wink:

built thanks to the help of French, English, German, Netherlands’, and US fellow retrobikers.
And the occasion to learn how to build a wheelset. So at my "advanced age", at least I managed that 8)

Thanks to all. A true result of all over the world “retrobikers”


Hope you enjoy it

I'm weeping onto my keyboard with joy. That is an absolute beauty of a bike.

I can just see people everywhere looking at that Lightning and thinking "oh well, maybe next month".

Very nice, classy bike.

Photo's of this bike never do it justice - I keep promising to get better pictures but the truth is I'd rather be riding.

Lovely paint jobs on the Beezer and Dave Lloyd 8)

This bike however lacks paint completely :lol:

1998 Dagger FS I'd been keeping an eye out for an Amp-based frame when I found this. Not the first brand that comes to mind but I remembered lusting after the MBA test bike BITD so I bought myself a project. I originally thought to replicate the MBA test bike but decided the 'factory' finish looked cool after stripping the paint. Full story here:

Glad that “mid-range” month is now over.

This might support Bushpig’s claim last month that HIS Newsboy was “mid-range”. :wink:
