Interesting how different the opinions on this bike are. Definitely seems to be divided into two different camps USA and UK.

Just goes to show how the two different countries are poles apart on 20 year old bikes!
The americans seem to be very period correct and original, but we seem to be less concerned with that and a bit more imaginative/creative?

Still say the only person whose opinion truely matters is monsterfat, and judging from cannock meet it will be ridden as chris chance intended! Keep it pinned as they say :D

Hay Rumpfy, what exactly did you do on the Sunday? I've always wondered.


Sorry, I'm not following.
Are you asking what I do on Sundays, or is this slang for something lost on this poor Yank?

Definitely two different camps, but there is surely some cross over in both directions.


Agreed. At the end of the day, its MonsterFat's bike to do with what he pleases.

Glad to hear we can be nice to eachother again though (...and no Jez, we're not going to "bring the lube" :D )

Yeah, the meet was a bit of a mare'. I got there 12.15 and only saw "iwasgoodonce"... We did a lap and got back to the carpark to see Random Dave + 2 others so off we went again. Talk about mud !! You missed me do the off in to the biggest mud bath you've ever seen. Still scraping mud from the corners of my eyes now !! Sorry to miss you pal.

Unbeliveable... All of this passed under my radar.

Nice bike. Can understand both view points, but at least he didn't throw it away and buy a Trek.
