I was under the impression that BOTM contenders had to be complete and working...

:shock: :shock: :shock:

It was close!! Congrats to Oneschnark and his Progear too!

Thanks to all who voted for the Laïti!! The worst 'dead end' bike definitely won! :lol:

Now I'm sure the Laïti doesn't suit my collection! All my other bikes only got a few votes in BOTM! It's just too strange/ugly for my common collection!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks!!! :wink:

No worries, I have a solution to that. I'll send over one of my associates and make you an offer you can't refuse. :lol:

That was bloody close

Surprisingly little controversy

And surprisingly few votes for the Action Tec, which truth be told is, in my evaluation at least, more evolutionary leaps than dead ends...

Proto 'Ahead' set up, Proto V Brakes, Proshock, leading the way for 'Headshock'... Full suss and all this in about '92? Excellent, excellent machine bursting with innovation and trick!

The irony-ometer would have expoded if it won:-D

Although the First and Second place machines are nice too and proper whacky!

So maybe people did vote with 'direction' after all!
