Place your vote! (JR. vs. SR.) Cadillac bike

http://auction.discovery.com/discove...e=home_oneline

I watched both episodes...good series. I Like Jr's bike better and it seems most others do too. I hope Sr. wakes up and smells the roses.

Yeah, the tail on that Sr's bike is pretty silly looking. Looks like something someone that isnt artistic or has little imagination would design. bike is just ugly.

They're both ugly bikes. Take the good features of both bikes, put them together then you'll have yourself a decent bike.

Sr.'s looks like it could actually be ridden on the street. With Jr.'s you would be hard pressed in right hand turns...

either way its all just them trying to keep in the media, that's how they make $ ( not bashing at all, just saying the contest doens't mean jack )

Sr's looks like it is rideable. Jr's looks like it is to low and would get scrapped up so I vote for Sr's.

I loved the look on everyone's face when Jr shut his off and it sank down onto the ground sans kick stand.

Looks like Jr's bike is a showroom bike, not rideable at all.

I'm inclined to agree with this...

Out of the two, Sr's...they didn't fully take advantage of the opportunity to be creative, and the tail from the seat back. I want to say WTF...pic 4 looks ok, but all the other angles shots. No, it's ugly.

I like what they tried with the backbone, but it doesn't work for me.

JR's...
I see more thought, design and creativity in it... looks less practical/rideable, but that's a dif issue. I don't really like the rear on it either. I think it's a bit too big/long but it looks better than the other. The front fender, same a bit too 'long' but they did something more than just slap something on there that looks like every other bike.

I was wondering about that, hadn't seen the show...which raises the practicality a bit and makes me more impressed with JR's build.

why is everyone so worried about practicality? these are show machines. the chances of someone actually riding them on the street is low. kinda like building a show car. not many people that have high dollar show cars drive them on the street much if any at all.
