2020 - Open Nominations for Bike of the Month
« on: December 23, 2019, 10:15:32 am »
Okay, people.  Let's see some nominations!!

FYI -- When bikes are duly nominated/seconded and voted upon, I will delete them from this string to keep it simple as to which bikes are being considered for nomination.

I would like to nominate Korven's CB500 build.
I'm usually a CB750 fan but can't miss this beauty!

looks good. is it running yet?

I think he was "about to finish" so let's find out if he's completed it (well enough to call it complete).  This restoration is a stunner.

i'll give a "conditional second" - so he has a valid nomination and, in case it's completed, only has to accept  ;)

I will accept the nomination once i feel complete. It still needs some roadtests and final touches. Thanks for the kind words and nomination

Edit. Now I accept the nomination.
