Suitably close, given the competition. Some of my favourites from last year didn't win BotM, but the one that did was the Toad, so that got my vote as the bike here I'd most like to ride.
Must admit that I didn't see that coming! However, having just looked at the thread, it's a lovely build.

Well done all.
Thank you.

Was not expecting the win either to be honest. When I built the Hei Hei I thought it was a bit of risk building it up with anodised black parts as opposed to the usual anodised colours, but it’s been my most successful build to date.
It was a very tough year, they were all worthy winners, the Pace and Kona were both at the Malverns and they really drew the crowd including myself. Just shows that we all really Love what we do wether we're riders or collectors.
