    Looking at the bikes that probably won't make the deadline, which bike did you have high hopes for finishing?

    My choice would have to be "Polished Princess"

    Now a public service announcement:

    ATTENTION NEW GUYS! Posting that your bike is finished in your build thread isn't enough! You need a finished thread here http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?forums/build-off-9-finished-bikes.90/

    Just don't want anyone to miss out because they didn't understand the rules.

    Good luck to all, Rg

    Polished Princess will be missed...

    My bike! The taxman is the culprit. But it will still be built.

    I still haven't seen all of the bikes that did finish yet.
    I definitely want to see Barry's finished

    My buddy Bike Bum's Agent Orange, mostly cause he's a great guy, helps a lot of people and he's really put a lot of effort into it.

    +1 on that! Great build, looking forward to seeing it done in the builds section!

    Luke.

    Disappointed that Heart of Darkness by Skipton, wasn't done in time. No telling what combination of unique parts he would have assembled together.

    I was watching Agent Orange and somehow lost track that he wasn't gonna finish. That's a nice bike, Rg

    Yeah, I'm disappointed but I'm not going to rush it. I still need it done by the first week of October so I'll be keeping everyone updated in the Builds Thread.

    Trying to get done in a predefined time limit is certainly stressful. I wasn't sure I would make it, I was almost going to call off a day of work until I realized I would lose more money doing that than I spent on my build.

    Not entirely too sure I will do another big build-off, and just work at my own pace. If I do, I will most likely keep it simpler.

    To tell the truth, I'm a slacker. I can drag a build out for YEARS (I have them to prove it) The build-offs get me off my butt and in the garage.

    That's exactly why I decided my first build needed to start in the build off... It would have never been finished!
