Yes, it did! I appreciate the 'love', but I don't think enough has been added to it to justify a second 'go around'!

Thanks loads!  :D  8)
It was a much deserved win imho!

So many great bikes it's hard to keep track!

One of my favourite builds has been the 'Big Bore Old Skool Cafe Road Racer'.

It's hand-built, it's from Oz, it's a hoot to ride!

My new nomination is for this beauty from kittykatjaz: http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=73414.msg885338#msg885338

I will second the little stainless Cb125. Neat looking little bike.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

OK we have a contest!  Voting to commence.

But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Here's where it started.



Tried to be innovative without being obvious.  Basically, it's a bike built to be completely functional.  Not too much priss, and certainly left with some proper patina.  If I change anything at this point, I put more of a desert sled high pipe exhaust on it.  Maybe the front fender again.

Rear drum to disc brake conversion.



Better front brakes too.

I like that the three bikes are REASONABLY in the same league, no "apples to oranges".

...but, of course, that makes the choice even HARDER!!!
It ain't braggin' if ya done it.
