    Well now that's gonna make voting next year interesting,without a fordsnake build we'll have to think harder to narrow it down to three.

    G-Matt, you did a great job on your build, pulled a vote out of me! Would love to see your work on the older camper. I have considered / am considering doing that myself. Trying to imagine a trailer that would work for camping, heading off to rat rod / custom bicycle shows with bike(s), and the like. Got any pics to share? :nod:

    Thanks for the vote bud !
    Yea got to love camping & going to a vintage bike shows hope to make it to some in the future. I say it's an old camper but really it was only 15 years old & 18' long But just was not taken care of and had a bad roof leak that was never fixed . I tried to give the inside a vintage cabin like feel .

    I think voting for yourself is like buying yourself a birthday present. Isn't the whole idea of entering this competition to see what the majority of the "members" think is the coolest build, regardless of if its a custom, restoration, or a rusted out rat? I think voting for yourself takes away from that.

    What fun, thanks to all involved. I'm coming up in the world. For the winter build off I came in last, for BOTEN I came in second to last, yepee.

    I tied for last... it's a little disappointing, but we will have to see what the next build off brings. When is the next one?

    As an analyst by trade, I love playing with numbers. It is interesting when computing the results, how many winners there actually were! I'd like to see more new and original ideas being recognized. Lots of cool bikes based on established ideas for certain bike types, but when we see new ideas and fresh engineering efforts, things that no one has done before, I think we need to acknowledge their contribution to our craft. Lots of cool bikes were offered, but how many pushed the envelope??? It's one thing to put pieces together (he with the biggest parts box wins), another to fabricate or cross-use parts in ways no one ever has. I hope the next time out more people take the time to look at all the entrants..... you might be surprised at what some unknown, rarely posting and unheralded builder has created!
    Congrats to all of the builders.....I wish I had your skills!

    Congrats to all, best thing I think about these build offs
    is it give you a deadline, I would just not get anything
    finished if it wasn't for a finish date!

    Thanks to those who do the hard yakka behind the scenes!

    PP,
    Have to tell you Gentleman's Indian Cycle was first on my list in the competition. I mulled over the other 2 votes for days, but a vote for your build was easy to cast. Very inspirational. And the end result - a classic!

    First year I entered, I ended up tied for 78th. I thought it was a cool build, but hey, I could see that there were cooler, so there I was. Still ended up with a bike at the end of it all.
