Christian Newman is an amazing builder with tremendous skills and attention to detail.  I'd like to see him in this competition.

I know him personally. His attention to detail is unparalleled but he's also used to a MUCH larger deadline for a build and he was telling me they only give you 2 months to do it so it's not going to be able to be as complex as he'd normally be going for. Would be cool to see his take an a brand new bike nonetheless!

Guess i was just feeling a little butt hurt yesterday because some of the proposals that were chosen over mine were pretty lame (See above). But looking at who they chose the narrative they are trying to spin is pretty obvious.
I voted for Christian Newman. He not only has the best drawing here, but I saw his stainless chopper at Born Free Last year and was blown away. True craftsman, I hope he wins.

I think that's why they chose the people they did. This is all in an attempt to sell motorcycles. They want their key demographic (30-60 yo males) to identify with the builders. Most people cant draw for shit, so if the builder draws shitty and then pulls off something halfway decent, it will make potential buyers feel like they could do something like that too and hopefully sell a few bikes. In retrospect I shouldn't have done a Photoshop sketch.

I like that the one dude wants to build an ADV bike from an indian scout. WTF
The thing is 988 lbs when it leaves the lot and massive.
Add adv style protection, bags, suspension etc and you're pushing 1300lb, and it's intended to go "offroad"

Not only can he not draw, he's apparently a nitwit to boot.

"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. 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."

?  No idea you were in the running... I'd love to see your racer come to life.

 I follow Newmans instagram.  I believe he had his lady draw it for him.  @ebdecke or something like that.

I wish all of them good luck. That is not an easy platform to start a custom build, especially in two months.

Pristine running and riding is the best platform to start with. All they have to worry about is the aesthetics.
