Perhaps we need to have a yearly vote on nicest bike, similar to Velo Cheapo...winning bikes cannot be re-entered.

I like that idea. sort of a BF version of the Cirque awards, and we do different catagories, i.e. Japanese, European, something like that. have set judges, and also a 'BF'ers choice award based on best of each category going head to head.

and just remember I can ban all of you.

I like it! I suggest there be a separate contest for each year, the Find of the Year, and of course we'd wait until the year is over before voting.

Sixty Fiver, in what year did you find the Peugeot?

way before the contest was thought of, I believe it's about 3 hours or months (not sure which) prior
to the grandfather clause cut off. . . gee I'm really sorry you've missed out on this.

I love this idea and have a pretty good idea which ones I'd vote for. Sixty Fiver's bike is just...WOW...awesome. I wonder if she'd consider cheating on him and being ridden by another?

I'd like to be able to include the stuff that already found its way into various collections, like Sixty Fiver's bike. If we rule out previous winners, it should stay interesting for those who cannot make it to those big shows.

2006 IIRC... she was headed for the dumpster and figured she needed saving.

Aside from having the wrong bars fitted she was just like this when I found her... it was only this spring that I decided that she needed a little polishing up.

Will be re-lacing the front wheel with stainless spokes (have re-done the rear)and have a few little dents in the fenders that need rolling out and just need a headlight lens.

Sounds good to me. Of course, I just mentioned the idea. I have no idea of how to best go about it.

Do we need a thread for submissions? Should we judge in the Winter, when we are deprived of riding these beauties.

rhm 08-12-10 11:58 AM

I think there should be a separate thread for each calendar year. I'd suggest, for example, we have a "2006: Find of the Year!" thread, in which Sixty-Fiver can enter his bike if he chooses to do so. It doesn't matter if minor changes were made later. It also doesn't really matter what year you acquired a bike; you pick the most likely year, and enter. One submission per person; you have to decide for yourself what was your best find.

I'd also suggest one has to state what the original find consisted of, and what the original find cost; in Sixty Fiver's case it was a whole bike, for free, but with a different handlebar. I don't care what he spent on the new handlebar (if anything).

Zaphod Beeblebrox 08-12-10 12:14 PM

I like the Find of the Year Idea too.

I'd like to suggest that we'd be allowed to nominate others bikes as well

Clarify please. Nominate bikes we don't personally own, bikes other than C&V, bikes not found in the last year, or ???

auchencrow 08-12-10 12:23 PM

1977 A-D. I don't think they are so uncommon - Except in mixte form.

Does this mean my winning 2010 Velo Cheapo Jetter bike, cannot be entered as a unique, one of a kind, nobody else has this cycle? :cry: I can't believe my ears! :eek:

I thought about that, but I'm not in favor. Consider, for example, if I nominated your Duerkopp and used the photos you've already posted. I suspect you would think "but it's not ready yet!" So I'll leave it to you to enter it when you think it is ready. You just have to have it ready before the contest begins....

Just kidding! :)

As seen on our group ride this morning. What a beauty.

I'll see if I can't snap a pic or two of some other interesting bikes a little later.

well at the risk of posting the same and only stored pics of my bikes...
1980 Mclean, I know some others here have Mcleans, but I have never seen another out-and-about:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v218/jvpro/002-1.jpg

I've seen a few older fuji "track" bikes around, and I've seen a few new fuji "feather" track bikes, but the only older ('76) fuji feather track I've seen anywhere is mine -
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...bianchi065.jpg

Also, I've seen plenty of internet raleigh track bikes, but again the only one I've seen around here is mine, 1979:

There is a guy in Wilmington NC that has an older (early 70s) Raleigh track, we will ride if I can ever get down there.

Very Cool....thats the first A-D mixte I've seen. I love my A-D.
