    Thank you to everyone who added their ideas, input and encouraging words throughout the past three months. Without this forum and the people who contribute to it, this bike would probably not be finished at this point! The full build journal can be seen HERE. -Jim

    For lack of a better term, I like the 'lighter and brighter' look of Quoise. If that makes sense?

    Great balance between the wheels/tires, two tone paint, fork and saddle, top notch rat-ina all works!

    Excellent quality work yet again RM...
    This year I learnt yr patina trick... And that fiberglassing a tank is not easy. Well easy but the fine finishing is a drag...
    I have a old higgins sitting here and I believe it is time to bring her to life...
    So she will be the next one to make a tank.

    I'm a lurker, first time voter, and still learning my way around this forum space.
    The vote post came across my facebook feed, and I clicked and was just blown away. All the builds are great, but this one is special;
    the patina, the stance, the lines, and the creativity and skills apparent in all the details.
    The tank is over the top.

    I've always thought of the Raceliner as an iconic build. Great to see such a beautiful variation on the theme. Not to even mention making fiberglass rust... and showing the rest of us exactly how to do it.

    This years build-off couldn't have come at a better time for me to go all in. I didn't have a bike planned and wasn't really sure if I would participate at all up until I took a commission to build this bike just prior to the start date.

    As usual having the build-off deadline pushed me on days that without it I would've put off bike work for other things. That worked out good for me and the owner but not so good for yard work and home projects!:21: Never say never, but next year I will most likely either sit out or scale way back for build-off 14.

    Thank you to everyone that voted QUOISE to the top and congratulations to everyone that finished! Go enjoy the fruits of your work!
