In a Kaiseresque moment of indecision I have started building a shonky SS MTB, afterall I won shonkiest bike last year and thus have a reputation to uphold.

So far the frame and forks are from different decades, front cants, rear Vee's, mismatched pedals and brake levers and tyres, plus as much bodging as is possible. Ugly oh yes 8) :roll: :wink:

Thinking of a Dalmation inspired spotty paint scheme if I can be bothered.

We need to start planning Retrobike HQ at the event, anyone got a banner ?
The Scots element should start digging out the flags and tartan etc

I'm so looking forward to this despite the fact I'll probably crash or collapse in a ditch after only one lap........same as last year :roll:

And who imediately got rid and then went through several versions all never finished until finally building something as yet unfinished that may not even be retro :shock:

Mind you that first Dale was a beauty, you should never have parted with it, looking forward to your new steed.

I'm having ME induced brain/inspiration failure and thus the shonky SS is on hold possibly never to be built. The Hardrock SS will be at the Drumlanrig and probably Dalby as its fully functioning and nicely retro. Tried a spot of Drumlanrig style woodland trail bashing last night, its going to be tiring but fun, bring grippy tyres for the roots !
