Hi all

This is my Nigel Dean Montana I Luv it. Ive had it for 17 years not from new. My dad bought it off of the owner of a now gone viaduct cycles in Chelmsford, Essex, following the theft of my also much love Muddyfox courier mega. Through the years i have replaced most of the origional components which was as i remember all campag the only remaining campag part is the front wheel which is still perfect. i have no real intention of restoring to its origional state as this is the bike im riding in kuwait and i need it to work. Its missing the (MONTANA) decal which Gil has prepared for me (thanks Gil). Thanks to
retro bike and nevada smith for encouraging me to sort me bike out also thankyou to Brian the postman top man.

enjoy the pics

Looks ace - great to see another Nigel Dean on the site - a really rare thing - add it to the British Steel thread:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=188154

Also keep hold of those rigid forks - they look pretty unique with the various mounts on them :)

discovered some photos of me with my Nigel Dean in the early 90's. none of which are the original colours. think i badly sprayed it blue first then i sent it of to be sprayed red which i wasn't happy with so now its green.
