I threw this bike together for the recent South West meet. It's been on the cards for a while, but the ride was the final push to get it finished, that and the right shifters! :lol: (Although it's not strictly finished, just finished in a working sense.....)

Okay so it's not strictly retro, 2001/2002 frame, late nineties parts etc, but the inspiration is Tomac (and Madcowkev!). I had drops on an old Raleigh frame in '94, now i have a choice of bikes i fancied doing it again.
