My vote goes to Ghetto Bassie. I have always loved the black and silver paint scheme, and this bike sits alone as my favorite in that color. Looks so much better without the red RVT across the fairings. Of course the upgraded wheels and everything else puts it all together... Nice bike man!

Hard choice between Ghetto and Dutchy. There is just something about the black bikes that is classic so Ghetto Bassie gets my vote. Want to "build" a black one if the funds should come together someday.

Pipes were the deciding factor for me. I like 'em high and tight. But now there are at least three more colors of RC51's that I want. All nice looking bikes! They'd look even better if they were all in MY garage!

Congrats on the win! If all the entries had Bonzai Pipes, I would have had to flip a coin, or choose by who had the coolest graphics, stickers, etc. Well done!

2005 750 Katana
2000 KX-500
1984 VT500 Ascot

Nice Old Harley you got there! Mind if I kick it over?
