Tough month this. Love the Oranges (suprisingly for me :oops: ) but went with the Dr's Fat as I love the pure look of it. Everything a retrobike should be imo. 8)

it has to be the dagger FS due to the fact I like colour and the thought that has gone into this bike. I made the choice on the fact that all the other bikes were just put together in the what i call 2 part bike build IE frame and groupset, where the dagger seems to have been built from scratch with the thought process of colour and custom.

thanks andy

J_Westy's Schwinn Bomber for me please.
It has been love at first sight despite the other beauties in the contest, no matter how rare and exceptional they are.
As usual, emotional vote due to high handlebars and slack angles, bikes of that era will always be "it" for me.

I await the surprise with great admiration. I am doing a klein adroit at the mo which has never been seen or built, and will be the most bling klein ever seen. Its taken a lot of people and judgement to create this baby. Lets just say i have had to get a lot of company's to re-work there old component templates to make this work.

thanks andy
