    Another build-off done and dusted, thanks to everyone for participating and building some truly great bikes! :41:

    Place your votes here, you can vote for as many bikes as you like in one sitting, one, all or anything in between, however once you have voted and hit submit you can not come back and vote for any you missed, so make it count!
    Voting will run for one week.
    Congrats again to everyone who finished!

    Here are the bikes:

    The easiest part to a build-off is building the bike,the hardest part is voting...
    And to think we are only allowed to vote for 3 in the summer build-off.;)

    Too bad we can't just vote by bike names... "Half Fast Flyer"! ....:rofl:
    Lot of nice builds, and once again I missed the mark:(, didn't want to rush things to get in under the wire... and then have to compete with some of these builds! I'll show up in the "Build" section;)... gotta go vote!

    Wow, what a great way to get thru the winter - build a bike!:)
    Memories, freezing my fingers scrubbin sticker glue off the frame and forks with "Goof-Off" and a rag outside cause the stuff stunk sooo bad!
    New tube exploding in the basement (@ 11 PM) cause I didn't have the bead seated! :crazy:
    I'm amazed how cool these bikes came out - everyone has to overcome many challenges to do this.:thumbsup:
    Great time, cant wait to do it again!

    Almost worth the vote in itself that name...
    (If you don't get it, try saying it out loud...)

    2 slight clarifications for any who are unsure about voting:
    You can vote for as many or as few bikes as you like.
    All your votes count the same.

    Luke.

    Couldn't resist, wanted to see how many people had voted and for how many bikes...
    Looks like at this point 27 members have voted and we averaged 4.63 bike votes each.

    I didn't take the time as I was hurrying to get everything done and submitted with the Bhuzzard, but I would like to thank KEMPRACING, Walker, and Double Nickle for their pieces of the puzzle! And also thanks to everyone who made suggestions and contributed to the discussion while the build unfolded!

    How cool is that when build-off competitors give each other ideas and parts! It's all about the hobby and encouraging each other to do their best and keep it going! We all win! :)

    A whole lotta WBO fun! Really difficult to vote for even 25% of the 27 bikes here, much less the top 5. Cutting bikes out you like is not a whole lotta fun.

    Fantastic job builders! I struggled to do so, but I narrowed it down to three.

    The two smog buggies are virtually running away with the ballot box! Rightly so...they're both master works.

    couple of things...

    Firstly, Luke, thanks for putting this together. I know it's a bit of work to do and I just wanted to say thanks for that.

    What a mixed lot of cool bikes came out of this. Always interesting to see all the different directions people go with an anything goes build off. Also gives you a glimpse of the diversity of skills we all possess and loads of new ideas for future projects.

    We all win!

    I second that emotion! When do we get to have the klunker build-off? :)

    It runs the same time next year as this winter build did this year, so Jan to Apr 2016...
