    --------------
    That's the bikes Guys and Girls, pick your favorites! You get as many votes as you like, but you only have one chance to vote, you cant come back and add more votes.

    Voting will run for 1 week.

    Pretty sure everyone will agree with me that all the builders are winners, and the main reason we do them is for the motivation the build-off brings with it, so don't get too competitive and please keep the comments light and encouraging. :thumbsup:

    Good work everyone! I bow down to the fabricators and welders since it's a skill that I don't have:cool2: The best part is that all of these are 1 of 1 in the whole world which make them the rarest and most valuable of all bikes...to their creators.

    I'm with pick, cool bikes all around, it's great to see this many great builds in a mini build off, voting is definitely tough.
    For everyone who tried, and everyone who finished congratulations it's been great seeing your visions come to life.

    Above is the order of the ones I like the most. Even though I like my bike allot I had to put it third.

    As stated already it was a hard one to vote for as they are all good. Each that made it to the end should be thrilled and for those that didn't should still be happy as they got to join in a great build.

    I know it is hard to vote on this... just seems like the builders only voted though.

    I was actually hesitant to vote as I was not involved in the build off. I of course watched and followed the builds but missed the boat to get involved. Maybe others feel the same way????

    I am pretty sure that all the builders will agree that all RRB members who want to can vote, weather they were part of the build-off or not. We all want some feedback on the bikes!

    Luke.

    It appears 37 people have voted so far with a total of 101 votes, or 2.7 votes each on average...

    Congrats to everyone! :113:

    I attempted to limit myself to three votes, but ended up stopping at five. I could've kept on going even then! I decided that picking 1/3 of them was enough.:agree:

    Lots of great bikes in this build off picked up a few tricks and think I may have to learn to weld .
    Can't wait for summer build off to see what you guys will come up with next.
    especially Luke

    cheers B
