Voted.  Like the look of the 400F. Classic appearance, well appointed.   But the 450 is my choice.  Look is amazing.  Different look. board track style bars, leather seat and bag as a side-cover, muffler on the left, old style.   I like that.  It also would look  great next to my Bomber and of course,on the banner.   Appreciate the work put into all of them,  CHE  (risen from the dead)

So who's this guy? If this is his first build you've got competition! Take something stock and make people ask with a knee over the tank badge (what the?) He's got my vote. Might be showing my age but never saw a 70's Yami replica in the 60,s

may be just me but if that sr250 had some semi knobby tires it would be a shoe in. Not sure at this point who to vote for. What are your standpoints on foreign policy.

Thanks all, it has been an arduous journey rife with blood, sweat and tears trudging through the darkest chasms of black sludge and sooted billows.  The beast transitioned through many forms, each more formidable than the last.  Days, weeks and months passed and the beast had not seen its beckoning. Finally emerging nearly a year on the day, with a shiny metal construct forged from the purest steel in the land.  The gods had graced the beast with the finest of drabs, leathers from the European shores, eyes from the great greek cyclops and a spirit more pure than mother teresa herself.  As the beast manifested in first day light, a roar was heard throughout the land, rumbling through the hills, down the mountain side for all to behold. Alas! cried the beast, I am freeeeeeee! And I heard as it were the noise of thunder. One of the four beasts saying come and see and I saw, and behold a white horse...And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts. And I looked and behold, a pale horse, and it's name it said on her was Ginger, and Hell followed with her.
