I had to go with the Segoni,  It's very me.
But I do like the Flat tracker also as it's a real worker.

What's with the photoshopped side cover on number five?

Surely grounds for disqualification.

Demi for me, but yes, just like the real thing some further surgery is needed to get her just right.
History, eh! It's just one bloody thing after another.

the segoni looks marvellous - so unbling it's not true.

I normally really like flat-trackers but for some reason this one just doesn't float my boat

Has to be the Segoni for me as well... a lovely period piece.

Fritz. W's fairings spoil most of his creations unfortunately.  If #5 goes as well as the specs indicate, it would be up near the top, but seat and exhaust proportions spoil it too. 

Got a potential candidate for this competition in the back-burner, not quite ready for the public yet. ;D  Gonna blow everybody outa their socks when it is, but that will take the best part of this year! :P

The Segoni anytime! The chassis didn't really work but it is a bike that always fascinated me.
Had a strong works engine with decent compression.
