The Jota 3C is the one that makes my heart race but  I can sense the time and agony that must have goe into #2.  For that alone and turning a pile of scrap into a nice honest bike it gets my vote.

For me, the choice is between the 3C and the RGS, in spite of the fact that they're completely different in terms of feel, engine and form language. Given that fact, they both appeal to me in their own way because of their overall visual simplicity. In the end, I come out in favor of the older machine, a beautifully done piece in the "old school" way, i e wire spoked wheels, bum-stop seat and un-decorated tank and panels...I'd have to put on my new, "old school" boots by Gasolina and get me pudding bowl helmet to ride it.

Nice work.
Ciao,

Sheldon

An early triple simply can't be bettered for looks. So #1 it is. Even though (anorak mode on) the front mudguard is fitted the wrong way round...  ;D

Congratulations to Ozzard Low and Scott Potter (for carrying out the work). Clearly the winner of this BoM by a country mile and it is not surprising consdering it is such a superb bike. The competition was stiff which makes the margin even more significant.

Please feel free to add any further comments.
