I bought this motorcycle because it is a numbered limited edition with not many offered to the public.
I've kept the bike in stock appearance of a dragster type motorcycle as it is a comemorative paint scheme of the Vance and Hines quarter mile race bike.The work that has been done,I did myself,just a little painting,some lowering,a seat change and a stock modified exhaust.I have well over 20 thousand miles on it now and have ridden out to the mid west of our country a few times.It is a very comfortable motorcycle and it handles well.I am proud to be the owner of number 41.

Gotta go for Frank's bike. Besides all the stuff he's listed he designed and built a key fob remote front and rear suspension control system and remote stand setup; it's a big bore; there's a bunch you don't see that sets this bike apart. Single shock rear suspension, extended swingarm, etc. all designed and built by Frank. This is a true custom!:notworth::notworth::notworth:

I would say #4, for looking the meanest and sickest. But it was a tough choice, as I loved #11 also. Both Eric and Frank have awesome taste, good job guys.
Wow, some great bikes, humble to be in this contest with such fine machines!!
Mr. Martuszewski, you are responsible for the 1st custom parts on my bike. My 1st week here, I bought my PC black brake pedal from you. It was the start of my transformation!!

Lux, thanks for stick with this month after month and seeing this project for bike of the year for the full 12 months.

Thanks again for everyone who voted for my bike to get me this far.

Glad I could help, hope your wife doesn't blame me for the start of such mad work you have done.

Mine would be in here if I didn't deploy so damn much, oh well maybe next year.

GL to you all.
