    Your bike stood out as my first choice very early on,......it was second and third I had a hard time deciding on.

    Grats on your win!

    You have a cool ride there.

    You know I was going to vote, but I got caught up with a lot of other things. excuses, excuses :roll:

    That is a great build you got there. So are you going to release all rights so we can have that on a shirt or decal :?: :mrgreen:

    The tires are great. Almost no rolling resistance and thy seem to hold up well. The traction is excellent. You really can't beat the quality for the price.

    Hi Petrohead-

    Congratulations on the win! I've been away and didn't get a chance to log in earlier when the contest ended... but you had my first vote, the easiest one I cast.

    The bike looks great and you deserve the win. Great mix of old and new, coming up with that awesome vintage racing machine look. Super cool! 8)

    Glad you enjoyed the contest too, and took the top honors on your first try! There were an easy 20 bikes in the running for top dog here in my view- but yours definitely stood out in the crowd.

    Great work and hope to see more creations from your garage!

    --Rob

    the 5bar frames are sought after...dont want to say "rare" over used word! but collectable. and if you look it up youll see some awsome factory bikes.
