Haven't taken part for a while because the latest selections didn't turn me on.  These really turn me off, but it's gotta be Pink Flamingo for me.

Only example displaying out of the box thinking and imagination imho, looks to be quite well executed too, even though it is fugly as hell... ;D

What a pitiful waste of time, money and a bunch of bloody good bikes! :o

No 4 is sort of ok ????? eeek! .........but if you're going for seventies kitch it's 8.

Are choppers 70's kitch?

Kitch is an inferior, tasteless copy of an extant style of art or a worthless imitation of art of recognized value,,,wikipedia

I would go down the pub on 8.

3. But only because I've always thought a handjob to be, almost, as good as a bobber (BJ).  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

 
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

No 4 for me, gets the nod over #12; these two seem to be the only ones that were built to be ridden IMHO

No vote from me!!!

In fact the addresses of the owners should be made public in order for the bikes to be confiscated and given to good homes.

OK, they're all sort of wierd and strange but some of these examples had a lot of heart and energy  put into them. The idea of building a triple with extended springer forks, Tricolore Italian flag metallic paint scheme on a peanut tank, and three fish-tail exhaust system seems cool. It just strikes me as a lot of these things are missing the last bit of detail work to make them into something that could be appreciated. I admit to personally being more of the rivet counter sort but at least none of them are blatant orange and are at least different. The Hand Job got my vote, less is more. What would Scrumpy call it if it had a 120 engine stuffed into it? The Horror...

No seriously it is actually quite nice and very uncluttered.

I especially like the stick shift.

Good grief Scumpy - you really are scraping the barrel - they are truly dreadful  ::)

I guess if I have to vote - my vote is for the barrel you just scraped - more class and style than any of the above  :-*
