Well, it's taken me about 20-years to buy a Cunningham bike (after coming close a few times), but, I finally own one.

This was built by Charlie circa 1985 and is frame number 42. Some of the nice features on the bike, consist of a lucky nickel under the fork crown, WTB labelled Ground Control (Jacquie Phelan named) tyres before Specialized mass-produced them, Edco headset converted to the Grease Guard system, Shimano BMX seapost head on a normal die. seapost tube, pinned and bonded, Type II fork with cantilever brake, Hi-E bonded riveted hubs, Cunningham Light Weight Quick Release, Speedmaster Rollercam (swiss cheese) brake, amongst some other features I'm probably missing! I'll update in due course.

Show Charlie some love here https://www.gofundme.com/f/w85tn3dg.

Please be pic happy in this thread. I think just about everything close up should do. I thought Klein's were the first light aluminum bikes until I began learning about early 80's mtb's. Charlie is a genius & you have a bike for life :)

Agree with above, lots of close up pics please. A pipe dream bike for most of us like a Series I/II or III Breezer. 8)
