    One of my favorite things about Build Off 8 was the Highlight Thread that toeslider started last year. I say let's do it again this year with the same basic concept and rule that you point out the cool things that you see others doing and aren't allowed to toot you own horn about your stuff in this thread. Here is the intro to last years thread: http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-build-off-8-highlight-thread.72241/

    In this thread I would like to see links to, or pictures of, cool things that people are doing in their build off threads. With so many bikes, if is darn near impossible to follow along with every build, but it would be cool to have one place to call out if someone is really doing something you think is cool or innovative, so others can check it out.
    One rule: YOU CAN'T POST DETAILS OF YOUR OWN BUILD HERE! That's what your own personal build thread is for, right? This is for saying "Hey, check out what Joe Schmoe did with this wheel" or, "Hey, did you see what Bubba did to his frame? here's the link..."
    Since I am building a bike, there's no way I can follow what everyone else is doing, but it would be nice to check in on a summary thread once a day and see what's really attracting people's attention.​

    DN's bike makes my heart flutter.

    I like this highlight thread. Was really helpful last year to keep up with the dozens of cool bikes.

    Nickel's Colson is just flipping awesome looking already, and I give props to anyone that has the ability to make their own frames. I wish I had the tools and skills to do something like that.

    It just gets better, look at how good the fit is around the tank with the frame tubing!

    Looks like more than a few steampunk styled builds this year. Google didnt really have alot of references, will be exciting to see what everyone thinks of.

    Man I love those cranks, wish I could use them myself, along with a bunch of other parts people are using.

    looks like Artifac should get a re-purposing award. Good stuff.

    Very cool look, and totally suits the "Fastback" title.

    Also, another bar added to the frame, and what really got me, electric mototered.
