THIS WAS NOT EASY :shock:

Lots of excellent shots of some really cool bikes and I had to narrow it down to 12 photos. I chose these based on several factors including, composition, clarity, quality of photo, bike style, etc.

A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED THIS YEAR! :mrgreen:

I will need all of the finalists to email me the high resolution version of your shots to steve@ratrodbikes.com no later than Sunday, December 9th. I will have to build the calendar in the RRB Cafe Press store and I will try my best to make the calendar available for purchase before the end of the year. Each finalist will receive a free calendar so make sure you include your mailing address in the email with your photo.

Congratulations to the following folks on making it into the top 12! :D



Grumpy (Terry66)


LeChiffre (Smoopy's)


Black Swing (bikebuilder)


Farmer Schwinn Style'52 (O.S.Kruzer)

Congrats O.S. Kruzer! You sure have some cool toys, between the the Mexican blanket, the panel van (unless its an old Citroen), and the metalflake helmet, I don't think anyone would have ever guessed your picture was taken anywhere other than the US... Great shot, its got real character and a special je ne sais quoi :wink:

Honored to have my 1st build-off bike selected for the calendar. There were a bunch of neat bikes submitted. I would have had trouble selecting just 12. My grandkids call me "Grumpy", so I'm partial to the Grumpy Higgins bike.
