I voted for one with a disk brake.

Accounting for selling my old engine and loads of bits I didn't need, it didn't cost so much to build really.   I could be in denial of course.   I do have a spreadsheet somewhere, but abandoned it half way in.  I enjoyed making the bits you can't buy, that's what makes all of these bikes so interesting.   They're all special.

I appreciate the open, honest discussion on this topic.

I just get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see fairly equal candidates really dicing it out for the honors. It only seems right. We have so many potential candidates that it should never be an issue.
It ain't braggin' if ya done it.

I will agree that I'm perfectly happy just being nominated. As far as equal playing fields, I think that part of the appeal is that it's open to all these builds here.

I don't think that I would be as happy with being nominated if we had an "everyone gets a blue ribbon" type of categorized competition.

Wow, that's great.  Many Thanks for the kind words and to all that voted.  Just told my old man and my son and they're pretty chuffed with that too.

I voted for Hurco, love this old suzuki's but both other bike are great.

Cheers Yorkie.   Will be over to the TT in our new (but still old) van this year.  I'll get the kettle on this time round if you get over.
