The white kestrel is nice in life, the paint really makes it hence it became my second BOTM :mrgreen:

the CSX is my next build project and I have some purple rims which I have held up to the frame and with amberwalls on it and I know will look great.

The hartmann has been compared to a hairdryer in the past :lol: but despite its looks its a very light frame.

cheers for the comments guys.

Beasty does it for me 8) Although I am unsure about the handlebar on it, and the need for a Girvin and Pace


the combination af the pace ans the girvin came from an advert scan Melvin did, its on the ellison below. I anit too sure myself but it will do for now as its the only 1-1/4 stem I got at the mo.

I do love the white MXZ. but that Ellison in the scan is also floating my boat. I'd kinda forgotten about those.

[quote="theboy"]west yorkshire you say? there seems to be a few of us from round that way on here - may I suggest a 'locals' retro ride?

Good idea! Provided you're all very gentle with me as I'm old and unfit!

By the way, how big a bike shed have you got to get all those bikes in!?

But how do you manage to move once you've fought to get inside - and get anything from the back out?!

I thought mine was bad enough - and it's bigger!
