Official result for the Sept 2011 retrobike BoTM contest

1. pete_mcc's Klein Attitude Graffiti - 45 votes
2. dinger's Landshark Tandem - 23 votes
3. boy"O"boy's 1991 Alpinestars al-mega DX - 16 votes

One of the more interesting BoTM contest, congrats to Pete on a well deserved win. As ever the winner has their bike featured in MBR Magazine and takes a years subscription. If second and third would like to PM me their address will pop some stickers in the post.

Was going to post regarding how people had decided on which aplinestars to vote on. Whilst reviewing the pics it was obvious, not only was boy"O"boy's a clean example but the pics were excellent! A lesson to take forward methinks for all (myself included).



Dead chuffed with 3rd place considering the Calibre of entries this month. Congratulations to pete_mcc and all 'neon special' entants 8) Thanks to all those that voted for my Al-Mega.... it's greatly appreciated! :D
Thanks for the comment on the Pics too John, really pleased how they turned out.... I've already found a few of my pics on different sites through a google images search!

Thanks again all,
boy" 8) "boy

Wow! That's amazing! Thanks one and all for the votes. Obviously huge kudos goes to Jonrock @ www.kleinspainted.com for his superb paintjob

He took the bike from this:

Credit also to Jon indeed. I suspect there maybe more Graffiti Klein's soon.

Perhaps you could do a little tutorial as to how you took those photographs.

Can't we just ban Kleins from BOTM and RBOTM in future - or just make a Klein of the Month category or a BOTM that is not a Klein category?

+1

Does anyone think that some people may just vote for a Klein because it's a Klein? I don't know.

The winner this month did have a very special bike though.

I finished 4th with my €5,- Muddy Fox!!! :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol:

Thanks all! And congrets to the winner!!

I love that, building a very good looking bike very low budget.
That gets my attention more than a $1000 frame with all the ano bits you can't use because they may crack. 8)
