    Name of Build -
    ALMOST WHEEL COOL
    build thread is under "Big Budget #1" - Here is my other bike that I did not finish due to my drag brake console not being finished in time (got it back today). I need a couple finishing touches. SO we don't get confused between the two bikes - We'll call this one ALMOST WHEEL COOL.
    The frame and fork were powder coated with heavy metallic or glitter. Original Huffy Steering wheel with ultra rare original column, Original 48" Playboy sissy bar, Murray wheels and tires and just a simple Wheel bike with custom touches.
    Excuse my pictures - the sun was not out today.

    My heart felt thanks goes to many people who contributed to this build, including Jaxon, Kingfish, BikeBudy, Ozzy2nut, A.S.Boltnut, and numerous who've sold me parts, and others who aren't part of this forum but were major contributors.

    Just waiting on a reply from RatRod regarding the voting thread. Got a fair bit of it done before noticing I can only add 10 options for the vote and we have 21 bikes...

    I agress with Stonie68; really some excellent bikes in tbis build off. The Muscle Bike is alive. One other item to note..... not one Krate! Awesome bikes from everyone, no losers in this build off. I think there will be more people being inspired by all the builds.

    It's cool to see so many incarnations of the musclebike era. I'm pretty sure there was a krate, Rotten'Apple. Kind of a new school krate.

    Voting thread is up!

    http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/muscle-bike-build-off-02-voting-booth.80273/

    I had to make some changes that I hope everyone is happy with and can understand:

    1: Some did not notice the "place your voting pic first" comment so I had to choose for them, I hope I picked the right photo for you!

    2: The new forum gives two options on polls regarding amount of votes, either one vote each or as many votes in a single sitting as you like, so you can vote for all your favourites provided you do it in one visit before hitting the "submit" button. You could even vote for all the bikes if you liked!

    3: In the interest of fairness I did not post the videos to the vote thread, only two were submitted to my knowledge and it did not seem fair to everyone else, there is a note to come back here to see them if people want to though.

    I hope I did everything ok for everyone, it was much different from last time with the old forum set up and only having 4 bikes!

    Luke.

    Hopefully people are coming back to this thread if they have not already seen it before voting...

    Yep. Anyone just comes to see the finished bikes doesn't see your build threads and the amount of effort and skills some put in vs paint and polish..

    Just like any BO, you're going to have a mix of voters. Some will just look at the finished pics, others have followed the whole build off, and others will look at some of the build threads.


    GOOD LUCK to all! I added a link in my sig to help promote the voting.
