I’m crying over that piece of earth tape.

Although rejoicing over that stealth chain stay mech protection. 

@Mikee maybe our Ashton posts don’t qualify for this topic? ;)

@Ross McArthur I interpreted bikes that aren't yours, not frames. But I did hold off until you broke the possible rules first.

I was going for a “the one that got away” vibe. Didn’t want to end up seeing people posting pictures of their own bikes, going “this was my dream bike, so I got one!” :P

I bought one of Ryan Leech's old red and white manifesto's off pinkbike awhile back.  It was short a couple parts, so wasn't exact, but was pretty cool.  Shortly thereafter sold it.  So it's the bike I've always had feelings for and the one that got away. :(  One of the only bikes I really regret selling.

Always wanted a pace trials bike. Found on google images. One of Akrigg’s first ever bikes I believe.

Dual disc Megamo Equip Pro:

Original Coustellier St. Blaize.. Probably it rides exactly the same as the Zoo knockoff (first Pitbull), but what a pretty bike:

And then there was my all time favorite MK2 Ashton Justice, the bike that I never thought I would see in person. But late last year I managed to get one, so it is off this list now. Loving every ride on it :)

Chainspotting era Martyn Ashton red Beast of the East with Racelines, CODA cranks and the tri-colour Flite saddle is very droolworthy.

The Boxx is definitely up there.

Vario Tibo XL (always wished there was a mod version of that with the moto seat).

And on the posting your own old bike side of things I still liked my Repsol orange rimmed 221PR :)

The old CLS Pythons, was a bit of a fan boy back in the day but could never afford one.  Kind of glad I didn't as I ended up having a go on one and found out I preferred chainstays that fit within one post code area.  Never meet your heroes dream-frames.

The Brisa B20D and the original Koxx Levelboss bikes too - lusted after them after going to one of the early 2000's Bike Shows.
