Can I be cheeky and nominate my Fisher RS-1 ?

I just finished getting it to a rideable state and although it isn't yet 100% original, i'm still really chuffed!
I'm not going to get chance to touch it again, yet alone ride it for several weeks as i've just moved house (loads of work to do, decorating etc, etc :cry: )

-please note the tastefully added Retrobike decals!

The RS-1 was pretty much nailed on for a nomination - esp with the retrobike stickers :wink:

I last month voted for the Utimate. I prefer not to vote the same bike twice.

Retrobikeguy's MXZ is well thought out built up, has a fun underlaying theme and a lot effort went into it. The Kestrel gets my vote.

If the competition was on forks Carsten's Type 2 would be a winner too.
