Nice! Get it in BOTM!


Thanks for that too! It needs a clean and a new chain (which I have ready for it) but I imagined it would be too eccentric for BOTM which is why I photographed it in a just-ridden condition. I am very much in awe of the submissions and winners I have seen in BOTM. I think my frame was featured in one of the MB magazines in 1994 when it was built but I only found out too late to buy a copy.

After a clean to show off the high quality fillet brazing.

Another members lovely Alves reminded me of this beauty, so thought it deserved some bumpage.

I am still riding this bike with the same Air B inner tubes which I used when I built it 20 years ago. What a shame these disappeared from the market.
