Searching for pictures of various bikes, I came across this slowtwitch topic. Some impressive designs from over the years! Includes a picture of Obree in full flight on the bike that has inspired this build.

One of our customers bought one of these bikes last year as a project. Not sure what eventually happened with it.

I have the 'Flying Scotsman' dvd at home, all about Obree. Well worth a watch.

No Quicksilver? Breaking Away? Rad? There's quite a few 'good' ones. Apparently there's a new bike messenger movie coming out too.
