    I've found quite a few pictures of vintage bikes floating around, so I thought I'd make a thread dedicated to them!

    I'll start :)

    Rather than any, it would be nice to see bikes which people still own, but thats just my opinion.

    I have quite a few pre 2000 mtbs and frames so I may have to post some ;)

    still riding the same frame on a very regular basis...... the spin rims are still getting used too... though, not as much...


    spanky

    p.s. frame was made in 1996, as the next years model came out with a bent top tube... Oh, and there's http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/index.php for lots of great bikes....

    Love the above Heckler. There was one similar to that on the old Visit Mt Beauty tourists guides. Bloody beautiful!

    There seems to be a bit of a mid 90s DH flavour so far...

    I think I may have to go take some pictures to even things up ;)
