    Or could I enter both if they where the same build thread ? I was thinking of a funny name if I could do that.

    I think it says only one bike but don't quote me better ask the big dogs. If I was you I would build the Higgins & sell me the Sk .

    I might be a little burned on SilverKings after the last couple of BO's, but that Higgins is nice and would be my choice!

    Sounds like everyone is for the Higgins, as am I! Like LTJ said, burned out on SKs, not knocking them as they are sweet and I wouldnt toss one out of my garage!

    keep the rubber side down!

    Cool CWC as your choice here!

    I'd of went with the silverking! Personally I think it's harder to manipulate these old Duralium bikes into cool build off bikes...
    Not sure how anyone can be burnt out on them from past buildoffs... not when you see multiple styles of bike builders using their individual creativeness to make it their own! That's like saying... geeze another car tire bike or a fiberglass tank bike...

    So true Rrdz. That SK frame, if made with butted Reynolds steel would be something to behold and ride. I have broken two of them, and while I love them so, cannot own or ride them for fear of damaging a rare frame..
