Quality competition and not surprised to see the C-26 garnering so many votes . . . The attention to detail behind it and back story is really interesting but, even with the story and people involved in the project, I can't bring myself to vote for a reproduction.
ed, spot on as usual, no offence mike, it really was a fantastic story.
i looked through the pics first before reading any comments so as not to be lead by any other comments, i settled on the dynatech.
reasons are, and i mean no offence to any non UK members, this is retrobike.co.UK so i wanted to vote for a british bike, these were the bikes we saw back in the day, the yeti's, groves etc are fantastic bikes but they weren't really that well known by the masses, of which i was one back then!!
the other reason is the story of it, it wasn't just a case of get a frame and and some bits, mark went the whole hog!! got the bike, restored it, got the t shirt (well the lycra kit!) got hold of adrian timmis, raced it at mayhem, got it in the mags, and it's ridden regularly from what i can tell aswel.
some of the others i bet are as mint now as when they were built, and that is fine, lets face it, some of what we build we consider art aswel as transport!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
