Title: BOTM Bling
Post by: FromMaine on March 10, 2013, 09:25:11 AM
Its hard work keeping these old bikes roadworthy, even harder keeping them looking like some of the bikes featured here.

So, in recognition of that, each BOTM in 2013 will receive a trophy like the one pictured here.

This one will go to John Hilmer shortly, my wife was kind enough to send Jan. and Feb. winners theirs as I was away.

So post up pics of your Pride and Joy in the Gallery section and show the guys here your hard work!

If theres enough interest and posts in the photo Gallery I'll buy another dozen for 2014.

Michael & All,

This is over the top.

I'm at a loss as to what to say about you providing these to us that you judge worthy.

I have the perfect place to display this one forever and I'll try to post an image of it after it arrives.

Michael,

You are a class above!

John

Well dang! If that don't give incentive to dig those projects out of the barn, I don't what else will!
Great Idea, Michael! I owe you a beer, or several!  :beer:

This BOTM is really becoming something cool- even without the trophy. The bikes are such high quality, winning one is an honor of itself. I think a calender should happen, and I will definitely be trying to make my next project a front runner!

Folks,

I certainly would want a calender made from images of these machines, actually I would want three. One for work, one for home and another for a friend, maybe more if I think about it a bit.

I'll even go so far as to say that I'd be willing to help with front money if someone gets this to happen.

Now I'm worried a bit as the best images I have are only a couple of megs. I can probably get some improved images if this happens.

Yes.  And just think with a little work you could have the only MagnaWing  in Europe.

Michael,

I'm sure that the above posts are not what you were PHISHING for, but burying the the request here didn't really give it a chance.

I believe that the hit count on the various threads supports the need to continue your efforts.

Of course I have no clue about all of the effort this requires and much less of a clue about what all members are typing to you, but I for one really appreciate what you are doing.

Yours is a thankless task as I can see.

Please continue this effort.

John

Just got back to the US a few hours ago. Where the ship I work on was operating was on the edge of our satellite internet coverage. It was spotty and slow........

Last month it took 1 1/4 hours per photo to download, this month even that seemed fast as it just timed out before I could get a 1/3 of a photo in that time.

I'm still not home, I'm in Boston at the moment, but will post up after I get back from some errands.
