RatRodBikes.com 's Bike-Build-Off 3

This summer I participated in the RatRodBikes.com Bike Build-Off 3, an online competition for custom-built ratrod and hotrod styled cruisers. There were 58 finished bikes, of all different styles. Voting wrapped up last week and the winners were announced:

1st Place: Madd Hammer (68 votes)

by Monster Metal - Final Build Pics

2nd Place: DevilWing (65 votes)

by Joey Mac - Final Build Pics

3rd Place (tie): Pay It Back (41 votes)

by Karfer67 - Final Build Pics

3rd Place (tie): Maldwyn the Flying Merkel (41 votes)

by Boardtrack Fan - Final Build Pics

Here's a gallery of all the bikes:

And all of the build galleries:

And of course...the finished bike threads:

It was a lot of fun to be a part of the competition, and a great honor to have my bike included amongst so many awesome rides. And an even greater honor for my bike to come in second place

Cheers to all the bike builders, everyone wins… an awesome bike!

holy moly the Madd Hammer evokes memories of old 30's Oil-in-the-frame Ford tractors

I liked the Madd Hammer. He actually posted some video of it as well. Seems like there's a rear suspension built into that, which is not obvious at first glance.

My Snake Farm bike was part of that build-off, and actually got a vote, which was very cool.
