One vote for the 1992 MC San Andreas raced by the Earthquake Jake. Not sure how to place the vote. The before and after photos on the build story are amazing:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=405621&hilit=1992+san+andreas

Worth another read. . . in the end - they are all great bikes and all deserving!

Aye, there are some KILLER bikes there, and a normal San Andreas would not be my vote. But that bike is the very Epitome of why I come on this site. The bike of a much loved, sadly departed Pro who was an inspiration to so many of us.

If the Yetis were original, one of them would get my vote, but the Gecko gets mine as they're so rare.

Josh got my vote in December for the rebuild of Jake's bike. And I fear he'll get mine again :roll:. BTW restoration of mine is nearly complete. Stay tuned!
