Most Improved 2012 VOTING!

We have 5 submissions for the 2012 "Most Improved" (classic/vintage/veteran Triumph) contest. Everyone else - GET BACK TO WORK! You have 364 days to prepare for next year's contest.

Submissions are here: http://www.triumphrat.net/classic-vi...sion-page.html

Hmmmmmm... just noticed - they are ALL Cafe Racers!

Try to take a few minutes and read through the build threads if you have't done so yet; some of the craftsmanship and attention to detail is just amazing. Who knows what detail might sway your vote!

We'll let the voting run 'till noon (central) January 11th, at which time the bike & builder with the most votes will be declared the winner.

Well done, one and all!

Congratulations to Billy for getting the trophy! That was a close race! And congrats to the others for a job well done. It can take a lot of blood and sweat (and sometimes tears!) to get an old bike back on the street. Great work.

You gotta love a squeaker! I would have hated to see only ONE bike with most of the votes...
