Game on.

Woodys' DeKerf takes it for me. His first retrobike build and I think he's nailed it at the first attempt. It looks to ride extremely well too.

mr_ships' Nuke Proof a very close second. A really beautiful bike with extra kudo for being rare and by a very cool brand.

Joint third for me is the Saracen Kii Racers of Sidewinder and Drystonepaul. Sidewinders edges it on looks but DSP's blows it away it performance :D

A very honourable mention to Mr K's MS Racing. Wanted to vote for this so much as these where the fore runners of alpinestars. Nice bikes too but just not my era.

Tough decision to make this one.
I really like Mark's Orange, for it's lovely use of XTR, but I just don't like the Syncros stem on it. The Cro-Mega was always one of my favourite bikes back in the day too.
Dave's Boulder is a beautiful machine, which I would very much like to see in the flesh. I'm also partial to his Kili-Racer, but I prefer the original red if I'm brutally honest.
Strong entries from Easy Rider. I voted for his Dawes in the mid-range special a few weeks ago, and I do like the white Parkpre, but I just can't vote for a singlespeed.
A great selection of riders from MrK and M-Trax, and I do like that DBR from gray.

Which leaves the final two bikes which I have been fortunate enough to look at, squeeze the brake levers, weigh up and generally drool over on a couple of recent rides.
Woody's DeKerf and Mr_Ships Nuke Proof are almost too nice to ride, and it's a credit to them both that they don't mind getting them dirty.

I still can't decide which one to go for though...

Tough one, many good entries.

Sinnett177 Clockwork is stunning, i love DSP's Kili too. Woody's DeKerf and Mr_Ships Nuke Proof are bikeporn. I like Sidewinder Boulder too, but i'm not a full susser fan.

hmmm despite not being a fan of syncros stems at all, i'm going with the clockwork 8)

EDIT: Now I can see the votes, who voted for my Dawes :D
