Is it time for another Clunker 100 type build off yet?

Hey all, really love these build offs, got a few bikes lately that would work perfectly for these Junker type challenges.
So Narhay, is it that time again? Who, if anyone is keen?

Anybody else here like a good Junker?

Now while there are some stunning bikes on here, I am more into the Junkers, the wet weather commuters, the pub bikes, the lock up outside a mall and don’t worry about it type bikes.
