Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this build-off (my first). This has been a lot of fun watching these bikes progress. My objective was to attempt to take one of my favorite bicycle designs and make the rattiest cruiser possible without going overboard. Balance was my focus and to make all of the components compliment each other.

This is a good d one !
Most guys go the opposite direction on the SK .
I’m digging the worn out rode hard 70 year old look .

Cool to see a crusty SK roll across the stage. Very well done wingbar and you nailed your objective with this one. Gotta figure out what to with my wingbar someday.
Congrats!
Thanks so much Kingfish! It was a lot of fun. I am very thankful for all of the positive feedback from many members. When is the next build???

There is the one big build off each year...the one just concluded. Then there are the theme build offs...for the last several years there has been the annual Muscle Bike Build Off and the Winter Build Off.

For whatever reason, the Winter Build Off has been cancelled (murdered :grin:), and the MBBO extended a month.

In theory, a build off can be, and has been, started at any time. There are several examples of even two people build offs. Without the implication of official status...participation is on the smaller side.
