I think the Zinn gets extra points because he did the work himself. Then again the Koski gets points because Joe Breeze did the work. Kinda a delemma, I would like to see someone who worked hard on the bike get the win but when you have a bike that is historically significant and you have a chance to have Joe B. work on it you kinda have to leave it in the hands of a master. Then again, after seeing Stanlee's collection I doubt any of us will feel to bad for him if he loses.
I certainly hope he will post more.
Being from the midwest I'd be happy to lose to a Zinn any day of the week!
I have a ton of respect for Lennards work both on and off the bike not to mention that Giom6's restoration is top notch
It's impressive that the guy was a national team rider and then he went on to live his life building and writing about bikes. Giom6's bike is a great example of Zinn's work!
What's cool about all these bikes is they've been given a second life and that is great to see.
For the record, I had spent 3 years working on the Trailmaster and it was complete when it arrived at JB's. Joe did a stellar job of replacing a handful of parts so that the bike reflected Horowitz's original build and I'm extremely grateful to him and the guys here who helped!!
Reading my post again I see I made a mistake. I certainly didn't mean to imply that you had not done any work on the bike. Sorry about that. But you still lose points for offering up such an interesting bike without a thread dedicated to it with BETTER PICS!!!
