It looks like this is the last day to vote for your favorite bike of the month for September.

This was the first poll I've posted as a new moderator here, so I'm still learning.

Get your votes in then follow directions above to show your bike for October BOTM.

Well, it's not an easy decision by any means.
All great-looking bikes.

Something to consider when entering; although this is NOT a photography competition, an artistic presentation sure can't hurt! It can be fun to use this as an opportunity to be creative with your photos. Different angles, interesting backgrounds, that kind of thing. And of course a sharp, well-focused image will allow everyone to appreciate the beauty of your ride more fully!

Thanks, friends, for taking the time to share your photos with us.

SURELY we can get more than 14 daggone votes on this thread!!
C'MON folks! It's not like you only have two poor choices (like another contest currently happening in the U.S.)...there are FOUR to choose from, so far, and all are good-looking!
Take a minute and peruse the entries!

I just found out my bike was even in this one.

This is a 2006 V-star classic with less than 15,000 miles

The picture you see here is the bike as it sets now. When I got it the bike had been laid down with damage to the fuel tank and it was leaking in several places. I completed the body work repairing the tank and then painting the entire bike myself. It started out a dark metallic blue and the paint job wasn't that great.

The bike now has that fat tired old school look that I really like.

The bike has been lowered a couple inches, it has 12" ape hangers, custom shorty exhaust that's been wrapped and saddleman saddle bags. The carbs have been rejetted and the bike runs good for a little 650.

Here is before:

I found more pictures:

I also made a fender rack to cover the passenger seat holes. I made it from sheet aluminum. The wheels, fender struts and fork tubes have all been powder coated black and look good against the Sun Yellow paint job. The rear turn signals were removed and are integrated into the LED tail light.

This is a true bargain built bike. With purchase price and all I have about $1000 in it.
