Here's a interesting scan from MBUK (Gil_m has this issue up for sale at the moment if you want the whole thing!)

The Dave Yates frame as the competition prize looks interesting - check out the BB shell.

Yes - it is growing on me - got to decide which one starts first....

I am thinking Dave Lloyd 1st - the frame is in dire need of loving and the Yates is ridable (when I find a steerer the right length..

Found an article in a magazine about the a Nigel Dean Montana (501 Magnum version of my Nevada). Turns out it is a UK TIG welded frame which makes it pretty unique 8)
