Well done Patrick! I echo the sentiments of everyone who has posted before me. You know how to build bikes, and you're a good guy as well.

 

Again, well done!

I really like it, but must confess.

 

Did not vote for it in catagory of 70s because it looked so much like a bike that might have been there early 80s. (Tried to pick something that screamed 70s in that voting.)

 

I did vote for it in the overall. :)

 

Good going TO for the win!

 

Glenn Sidman had one of those, remember?

 

Regards,

 

A.G.

Congrats Patrick. A beautiful bike indeed.

 

I must confess that I voted for your mini though. As much as I am impressed with all the handmade trickery on it, I am more moved by the builder of it. Bid Daddy Ralph, RIP.

 

Way to go Patrick.

All in all a great BOTY this year.

Patrick that GJS is one sweet ride and a well deserved winner.

All class winners and nearly every participating bike were off the chains this year!

Congrats to all class winners, the bar is set really high for next years contest...

 

Also, thanks to all members who tried to help me get my second bike done in time, I guarantee I will have it done with time to spare for next years contest :OSThumbsUpPeace[1]:
