First of all... sincere thanks to all those who participated this year.  I appreciate it.  Thanks to those who took the time to peruse the entries and make thoughtful choices on which bikes to vote for - also appreciated.

 

This is the smallest BOTY in many years. The salad days are behind us it seems.  That said... it did turn out larger than i expected and there were some really first class bikes, as always.  

 

There were some super tight races in the classes this year, a few were neck and neck until the end!

 

Congratulations to the class winners. Kudos to the runners up... and thanks again to those who entered bikes. Great stuff through out!

Please note:  The original winner was withdrawn due to the fact that unbeknownst to the owner - the frame was a 2009 Re-Release Retro S&M Holmes, and not in fact the early 90's Holmes the owner thought it was.  Sorry for the confusion everyone.

Way to go Torkers !

The yellow and black were well represented this year for sure.
Very tough decisions in every category this year, and it seems many where mulling over similar decisions looking at runners up. High caliber builds and finds, a few great stories, and impeccable attention to the details that make some bikes just SPECIAL. Kudos to all involved, congrats to all winners, hope to be back in the game soon with a build or two that have been way slowly coming together for years.

Congratulations to the class winners. There were some tough choices when it came to voting, truly awesome builds everyone. Had fun, didn't get a lot of votes, but that doesn't matter to me. Looking forward to seeing the overall winner and hopefully getting some bikes in for next year.

Thanks to Steve and the Society for puttng on the BOTY competition and to everybody that took the time to enter their fine rides into it as well as vote. My 1990 Holmes was my first entry and first class win. It was exciting watching the votes add up, and stressfull at the end when Smokin Steve was gaining fast....good times! Cant wait till next years competition, i have a few under construction that will be entere if we do this again.

There was certainly quality, if not quantity, which is still a good sign and one to hold on to for the future. Have just voted for my overall winner - not an easy choice!! Congrats to everyone who entered and hopefully I'll join you next year!
