Tough choice, Wibbly by a nose for the phat Ti high mounts and the well stickered up beer fridge...

Wibbly - you still have my favorite looking RC. I'm digging how you did this one up.

Old school graphics, traditional low mount exhaust, (and those sweet sato brackets), is about the only preference I can find to vote for. Otherwise, both of these bikes are probably among the finest street RC51's in the world. You just cant build one of our coveted bikes any better than these two gentlemen have. Honda should be proud that there's still a spattering of loyalists with prime examples of the RC51.
Good luck Codder, it's a close one!
Cheers to both Codder and Wibbly!
