Bike of the Month - November 2012
« on: October 30, 2012, 21:02 »
Some months I struggle to find the inspiration to search out new bikes to feature. There is one person currently on this forum who is turning out great looking bikes like they have come off a production line. So I approached him and he kindly agreed to supply me with photographs of them. We have all admired Grants work so now you have the opportunity to vote for your favourite. Thanks Grant.
So many photographs to pick over I am sure to have got a few mixed up. Any way Im sure you will point them out to me.

Happy voting

Scrumpy

A fabulous selection of triples - credit indeed to Grant, bloody well done!  8)
A difficult choice to pick just one, but I managed....

BTW, the Jarama and 3CL are one and the same. Grant?

Didn't know whether to point that out to Scrumpy or not!
Was just going to say nothing and see how the voting went on it/them  ;D ;D ;D

Well, at least this month I am guaranteed a winner! :P :-* :laugh:

I spent some time looking at the Jarama/3CL pics and couldn't find any differences. The only difference I thought I could see was in the colour. As the 3CL did not have any votes I was able to remove it.

I kept both orange and green 3C to which colour was preferred.

There was no plan to try to deceive anyone.
I was quite clear to Scrumpy about the bikes.
It's a simple vote for the one that takes your fancy.

I'm not a big Jota fan. My stable of bikes is a mix of what I like and what is available in Spain. No RGS models were imported to Spain I think. The 'newest' triples I have found here are around 1980 vintage.

My favourite triple is a stock 1200 with 4C cams and Jota silencers.
Not a big fan of the RGS either but the Corsa is a great exception.

C'mon Cosi, wake up at the back.
It is a UK Mirage spec.
1116cc low comp pistons make it nice and flexible, without the peakiness of a 981cc high comp Jota
