well done wadsy

you didnt have to buy us all a bottle of scotch to vote :wink:

a well deserved win, against some very strong competition. its been about time, you put a lot of time , effort and energy into your projects and coupled with your poor health this is testiment to your love of retro biking. keep it up.

once again well done

stubbsy :D

It seems to me that the bikes that are out of reach for most, can't win! ...is understandable. :lol:
Perhaps it would be better to exclude such bikes from BOTM. :wink:

OK - I will no doubt get flamed by the FAT Fan Club.....

I think it is interesting that a not overly glam British steel bike has beaten off the fancy dan, boutique Fats & Yetis etc.

And surely the whole point of BOTM is to show off the more unusual and/or classy builds.
It's aspirational - all these bikes are what we all kinda hanker after.

I see no point in having BOTM if desirable bikes are excluded - maybe you want a BSO-OTM. Maybe a Fat will win that?? :twisted: Kidding ;)
