"WAKE UP AND LOSE"
Congratulations Adam on the win! I think that anyone who looked over ALL the bikes in the gallery could have picked-out more than just three . . . man that was tough voting for sure!
"Great job" to all the builders that entered and thanks for taking the time to document your builds . . . good show!
My Intro <((><
Jesucristo es mi Señor y Salvador!
connnnnngradulationnnnsss Karfer! You've just won a Brand Spankin' newwww...drawing. oh and that shiney trophy.
good goin' man! glad you won! you got more votes than anyone else, your bikes are always the most eccentric, yet clean and uncluttered. you seem to know JUST what to bolt and weld where. the lines are never in the wrong spot (except on the inside of that tank but it was ok at the time ). the ideas are just oozing from your bikes. i think theres pills for that..oh wait, nope. fresh out.

Those that can count and those that can't "
Good job gentlemen. As it's been said, you guys really do stand out with the quality of work you've done, capturing the imagination of the whole community and the appreciation of your fellow bike builders.
The entire RRBBO4 list is really full of many winners- while we picked the crowd favorites or "Best in show" bikes as the winners, the really hard part would be selecting only 12 of these to go into next year's calendar!
Awesome work Adam and Mark, well deserved congratulations. We Connecticut guys will drink a toast to you and enjoy talking about this one for a long time to come.
There are so many other bikes that I really flipped out over in this Buildoff, and I hope all those builders will be back for the next one. I didn't put together a bike for this one because I was just too busy with many other bike projects as well as Real Life, but I'm glad to be a part of this site and feel like I now know all you guys like good friends. This site really brings people together and, unlike so many Internet forums, its almost always positive, friendly and helpful here.
Last, Steve ( Ratrod), THANK YOU for not only providing this forum, but offering this contest, inspiring 100's of people to do fun creative projects, resulting in good fun, great entertainment, lots and lots of eye candy, and most importantly, some lasting friendships in this community. Your website is a huge success and the world is a better place for it. I can't give higher praise than that.
Thanks for the fun, the bikes, and the memories!

.....and congratulations to ratrodbikes.com for the record number of brand new member registrations in the last few hours of voting. almost 30 new users by my count..... they definitely made the voting exciting.
Yay! ...now let's see their builds!
Exciting for sure! That's classic haha! Have all your the friends, family and neighbours to vote.
yep...that is classic I wonder how it would of turned out if the votes were for active members whom at least put thier 2 cents in during the build...Oh I dunno...maybe at least, 10-15 various posts within the several months as opposed to:
"hey mom, can you log on and vote for me?"
" bro, you gotta vote for me, I know ya got my back"
...hey ,I'm just sayin' as for the rest of us 90+ builder who got votes from total strangers on line...
...and I know you're thinking it, but yes, I said it.
Congrats to the winners you guys deserve it
