23 bikes have been nominated now. I'll leave this thread open till midnight tonight for any more entries, then I'll get a Mod to lock it and I'll set a poll up.

Cheers to all of you for getting involved in this.

After deliberating for a week on this it came down to 2 bikes. The bike I always wanted as a kid was a PK Ripper and is still my most wanted now, so these 2 really stood out for me this year. Pat a Lars lovely 79 and Ants 84 freestyle ripper. It was a tough choice but Ants just pipped it being more my era and something I remember kids doing to their race bikes as freestyle took hold. A fantastic build with a great detailed build thread to go with it.

Thanks for posting this one up. I meant to do it myself, but ran out of time. As you all know Ant is one of my closest friends, so there will be slight bias of course, but the attention to detail that went into this build was unbelievable. As we were building this I felt something that iíve never felt before in the 9 years iíve been building bikes. It went from being a good idea to absolutely loving it as soon as the wheels were fitted. I couldnít take my eyes off it, and i still canít. Ant - itís an amazing build.

I had a look on bmxmuseum, but couldnít see it. If it IS flanelcamelís (it probably is,  as he has loads of VDCís), his name is Ray, and heís from Oregon. The comp ST tyres on my VDC Changa came from him  :daumenhoch:
