Competeing against some fantastic machinery, but still, I'll throw my 1990 Alpinestars AL-MegaDX in as a complete wild card (and my 1st ever entry, incidentally :oops: ).

Apart from the rear tyre, pedals and bars, she's exactly how she left the showroom BITD.

Thats a real beauty Steve, as you say there are stunning bikes in this month, but for me that alpinestars is 1990 in a nut shell. My vote so far...
