    I tend to agree that this build thread misses the spirit of the build off. There was less than two hours before the first pic was posted. Also no real work is shown in the thread. It's pretty much, Here is some parts I started with and Here is the finished bike. Technically this is probably borderline within the rules, but it is not what the Rat Rod Bikes Build Offs are like.

    With that said, there is no question that it's a cool bike. ClarenceB is a new RRBer and obviously unfamiliar with how our Build Off works. It's about sharing the journey and showing the actual build. I hope he joins us in future build offs, but actually participates in them and in the forum in general.

    So he was building before he knew it was a build off bike. I don't really have a problem with him entering the bike, but I wouldn't vote for it, based on the lack of build thread. The story behind the build is a big part!
