Pace Rc305 because i have a mint one i the loft and there must only be one more out there because they all snapped...
Basically every bike I own, Mojo, Klein, Pace, Kona and Sanderson.
I am so very lucky, shame I don't get time to ride them.
Hard to predict what makes a future classic. Perhaps a bike that was considered better than what else was around at the time, even if cost a whole lot more. There is always that point, where the object (bike car etc) hits hits absolute rock bottom in its value. Then as time passes it acquires "classic" status, usually due to nostalgic middle aged men who find they can now afford that thing they wanted so much a youth. Look at the prices for MK 2 ford escort or even e type jags, or the humble old mini. At one time all these could be found in scrap yards.
For me classic bikes, the bikes that scored 10 out of 10, good to ride then and still good now if well looked after.
Horst link Turner 5 spot or Ti 456 both of which can be picked up for about £700 / £800 now. Next on the list would be Ibis mojo SL now the big wheel HD models are out these will be getting sold a lot cheaper than a few years ago. Grab a classic now!
ibis mojo for a grand anyone................
Give it another 10 yrs and i think these will be worth a fortune

What about the Burner? I have one of those
I also have a prototype Ti Pipedream hanging on the wall, but I don't think that will ever be a classic, but I'm beginning to regret selling the MF interactive now though as that is a sure bet
Cotic Soul, raved about bike and flagship/signature frame for a manufacturer with a strong fanbase.
Singular Swift, raved about bike and flagship/signature frame for a manufacturer with a strong fanbase.
Pugsley, kickstarted fat biking.
Nicolai's, Evil Sovereign, Dialled PA, Jones should all be in there too. I think the key is that the brand has a strong following and that they are maybe not low key manufacturers but not from the high street, mountain bikers bikes.
