As it seemed un-sporting to vote for my own bike (1990 by the way), and potentially embarassing if in doing so I doubled my my votes, ( :!: :oops: :!: ), I went for the bike that's the one I'd most like to have a go on - GoldenEraMTBs 1984 Fat Chance.

Hard choice as the '36 Mercury is one of the best looking bikes I have seen and Sinnerman deserves a medal for the resto on that Kona.

cheers navada smith....the complement means a lot.... :D

i really struggled with my vote they are all gorgeous bikes...in the end i stuggled to find a clear way of casting my vote......so i looked at them one by one, always liked klein and cannondale....that amazing jaw droping experience i had when saw them arrive on the seen for the first time, with the big coke can sized tubes (amazing).....(when i was surronded by steel)...the yeti"s ( tomac and furtado days.....legends, both)...clear wizardy,.........the cruisers..(those who know me, know of my passion for them)......but in the end....it was the goat, a love of the name the style, the paint...the tubing(steel is real)......a real shame theres only one pic, (an in use pic would have tipped me over the edge...lol..... :D).......give that man a cigar........... 8)

A real mixed bag this month; lots of effort gone in to them all, but some really don't do it for me.

I've gone for Stefans Yeti - love it and would have been my dream bike BITD. 8)

If there's one thing to take away from this months competition it's how important the choice of tyre is, a few nice builds ruined (IMHO) by shocking rubber..

The Goat gets my vote, classy build..

Some nice metal there - got to agree with Hilts re tyre choice.

I'm going for TiFatMans ARC with all black rubber. It was good enough for Yeti team though :wink: 8)

Great entries again this month, congratulations to everyone. It´s also very nice to see all those different ideas and concepts entering, really like that open mindedness 8)

But for me this month there is no bike as seriously cool as rossco´s 1952 Schwinn 8) Also a great match with the photo´s background btw. If a biker would come around on this I´d just say wow! What a story it can tell, far away from being NOS... To me something like that I guess :wink:
