    Re: PLACE YOUR VOTES HERE

    Mash Banger gets my vote! Having been a long time Lurker I decided to vote after I saw this bike up close at it's photo shoot in Kelley Park for the Behind Bars Show. Getting some insight of how it came together was interesting. Despite not being a fan of middle weight bikes I feel the overall treatment with found items incorporated with the mock motor blended well for an overall complete theme which would make one believe this was actually produced by a true manufacturer. Heck, I was even allowed to ride it!

    Yeah, I couldn't vote for my own bike with a clear conscience, either. So many I wanted to vote for, but there were two that I knew I HAD to vote for. The third... well, it was breaking a six- or seven-way tie.

    Did my voting this morning. Not hard at all. I feel the ones I've picked truly are the best of this build-off. I can even pick out a 4th place runner-up if I had to. But, I'd really have a hard time picking out number 5. And that says something about the level of buildquality this year. Almost ALL finished bikes had enough reason to take the trophy. So congrats to you ALL!

    Oh, and I've noticed someone voted for my Singlespeed Hotrod. Thanks to whoever did, and ofcourse to those that are about to do so. I truly feel honoured.

    I have cast my votes. It was a tough descision indeed. There were several bikes that I followed closely for the past three months, but it was three that had slipped past me that really spoke to me. Congrats to everyone that finished. The world has 100+ more cool bikes rolling through it now.

    Steve- thank you for giving this site to all of us bike nuts.

    Just cast my vote... And as everyone else has said and will say... It was a hard vote to cast. When I started out this year I swore to give it my all and take home the trophy... But everyone seemed to bring thier A game... I am happy and proud of the bike that I built.. no doubt about that... but the quality that has been displayed on this build off far exceeds anything I could have come up with. You can see each year getting better and better, but, this year jumped above and beyond all past years... Congrats to all on a great build. And for those of you that vote for me.. Thank you very much... I am truely grateful. Good luck to everyone!! I cannot wait until next year. 8)

    First and foremost a big THANKS to "RATROD" and everyone who was involved in making this build off a success. Congrats to everyone on their bike builds and thanks for all the support of everyone during my bike build. Being my first build off I came in not knowing much about working on bikes let alone restoring them so I just went for it with nothing to lose. I came out of this build off a "WINNER" with more knowledge of working on bikes and learning alot from all the talented builders in this site, and to you all I thank you. Wether you do or don't receive any votes, win our lose the build off challenge, just remember we are all winners because of the awesome bikes we build. Ride them forever! :D

    Seems that bikes that were featured on "Rat Rods" facebook are receiving more attention than others. I'm not a facebook member but I heard this from concerned members and thought I should post an opinion. It seems to me and others that "Rat Rod" has placed his favorites and those featured on his facebook are getting more exposure and votes. A lot of talented builders have been put in the shadows over some social network favoritism. i got a problem with that.

    Which 'members' have seen that? Do they have a link? Let them speak up. I've been to the RRB FB-page and still haven't seen ANY of the RRBBO#6 bikes. Not on it's bulletinboard, nor in the RRB photo-albums.

    Scandal! I "like" the RatRod page on Facebook, so I went there and checked it out and saw no RRBBO#6 bikes on that page, but possible there is another page out there that people are "friends" of, if so, I'm not a friend and know nothing about it.

    If these accusations are true then I can only come to the conclusion that my bike wasn't featured. haha
