i do agree with listing the specs, some bikes have won before , with little more than wheels, slip on cans and a nice picture , the spec would show how much work was put into each bikeWell that was different.
In a more normal competition, I wish the rules required (or at lest suggested) that the owner list some of the mods. A lot of things are not immediately evident, and some of the nicest bikes are 'sleepers' that hide some of their best features. Without more data, this is just a beauty contest, which is cool for what it is, but I wonder if it could be more, or if votes could be more informed. Look at how long it took for N2Wheelies green '97 to win, partly 'cause some of its engine performance (cams, pistons, clutch) was not visually obvious. It also might be nice to doc the mfgrs and sources of some light fairings, tail sections, wheels, etc.
