Voting should be open.  Votes continue to come in.  Unfortunately, I cannot cast a vote for you.

I hope that the owner members will chime in (especially Bobarama) with additional build information and photos.

Think my build thread says most of it. Nothing's ever done right? Currently looking to do a modern brake upgrade that lets me keep my forks...
the final touch of this iteration of the build was the Cat face tail light. Thanks, everyone for the kind words!

Don, as PeWe said, there is no voting button, even I can't see it.
 Being a Mod, I can normally jump from voting to seeing how the voting is going.
All I can see is Lock, Edit and Remove Poll.
 Not sure what has happened.

NEWS! EXTRA, EXTRA!  ;D
I could vote now!  :o  :D My laptop running Google Chrome. Adblock is running too, no problems this time.

I mostly use Tapatalk (Phone) nowadays (I have become a SOHC forums addict) and there no chance to see the voting buttons. I checked now when I saw them on my PC

But, I have looked for the buttons before on my laptop and my job's laptop. Maybe looked in wrong thread or something else.

Great folks. They will make custom bends as well. Ine thing to note is that they are just a hair over 7/8, requiring some finessing to get controls on.

gotta vote for the red one just because I love 4 cylinder builds with tanks off smaller bikes. Calls attention to the engine, I think

All-white race leathers. I probably would have scuffed those getting them on/off at the track.

Custom made Don about $1600 and when I dumped at VMP, because I was unconscious, they just cut them off me. OUCH. hahaha
