    I've totaly dorked out! I thought today was the final build day :lol: But I'm almost done so the tank will sit untill morning to let the paint dry. At this time in the demo derby, guys would be running back and forth to help fix everyones car so they can go back out in the next heat. If I lived near anyone, I'd be helpin' toss parts on :D From here I can only say HURRY! :shock:

    One thing I have noticed is a lot more custom fabrication of parts on these bikes.

    From building your own tanks to really wild springers...it's really been fun to see the creativity.

    This was my first time participating in a buildoff and I'm amazed by the talent and different ideas everyone has. It's going to be really hard to pick my favorite. I'm honored to be a part of the fun and look forward to many future buildoffs 8)

    Can I just say that I am excited that in this build-off, there are not one, not two, but THREE different SpaceLiner customs! As my favorite bike, it's great to see what others do with it as their "canvas". Both MikeS and Brigmaster blew my mind with their custom SpaceLiners! Great show boys, long live the 'Liner!

    Voting will be very difficult. Great work every one. Once again we all managed to outdo ourselves one more time.

    So, once the build off due date is complete tonight, how do we vote? Will there be a vote button or some other method. Sorry for the newbie question.

    After midnight I will lock the finished bikes forum and then I will have to create a page with a photo gallery of all the finished bikes.

    After that is done I will create a forum poll that has all of the bikes listed by name and the forum members can vote.

    I have the ability to allow each person to vote for how many bikes we want...i.e. 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

    We've never done this before, but it might be worth a try.

    I usually let the voting go for about a week so that everyone has a chance to vote.
