    Members,

    Travis and I have decided that by popular demand we will be doing calendars again for 2016. We had wanted to get started earlier but we have all been really busy thins year BUT we are still going to make it happen! It's time to get nominations in for the 2016 calendars! We are going to use the same format as last year bur we are going to speed the process up so it doesn't drag on. We are going to do the nominations for a week and then voting for another and get these going. If you are nominated please be thinking about your high resolution photos. I am pasting the post on rules and workflow from last year. If you want to nominate someone contact them and let them know. We're looking forward to another great edition of the calendar! Let's get this going!

    Thanks in advance.

    Shawn

    High resolution photos are needed for the bikes voted in the calendar and printing purposes. They are not needed for nominations or voting.

    I'll follow up, Jay Michael's tracker build has to be in there.
     
  11. I would like to see a Calendar with all stockers. Just stock bikes reborn. Every calendar out there has all kinds of bikes STREET CHOPPER CAFE BRAT and I would like to see some history made that would be there for years. Coming from a chopper guy who cuts up everything it may sound strange but I think this would take XS650 to the next level.
    2016 STOCK BIKES 2017 CHOPPERS 2018 RAT BIKES 2019 CAFE BIKES 2020 BRAT BIKES. That would give you 5 years of collective material and like a lot of other Calendars and books/pictures collectable ........
    I have the first EASYRIDER....The first JAMMER BOOK......THE first ARLEN NESS BOOK and others.
    There are so many good builders on here that one is not enough and it doesn't matter your style SHOW IT.
    Maybe it could be a vote of what we want to see each year ???

    Thanks skull! I'll accept for the bike if someone will second.

    You guys will make me do a serious clean and polish for pics though. I bought that bike as a 9,500 mile garage queen. Bit of cleaning, tune up, undo a fuggle or two, changed a few parts back to stock undamaged pieces, and rode it about 500 miles this year. That is all.

    Unfortunately I don't have access to a PC today, here's a link to his thread if someone wants to snag a picture. I'm sure most of us regulars know of this build, I really like it.
