what's going on now?

It's now past the deadline for submitting votes, yet it is still possible to vote - at least on this forum it seems. I don't know if MCN will exclude votes logged after the 21st, but there's no indication or evidence they're going to. Given voting still seems possible, isn't it just more work for MCN to have to count off votes posted after close of play on the 21st? My guess would be the votes cast will stand until MCN stop the actual voting facility, which is contravening the written rules. MCN seem to be playing this competition by ear and I'd assume they'll select the final 12 with similar attitude. Given the recent TV voting and phone in scandals that have been exposed, never mind the truth about the Blue Peter dog, the management behind this competition sure does seem somewhat absent. Maybe someone should have the competitions governing body take a look. I'm convinced this competition has been pretty unfriendly and unfair, and MCN's voting system is to blame entirely for such. It hasn't been as much fun as I anticipated, and several entering have made a mockery of the voting and thus what the competition is supposed to represent. It stinks quite frankly.

The idea has been to create a bike that substantially improves on the original without modifying the looks, attention to detail is exceptional. The front brakes for example are modern AP Racing 4 piston callipers with radial levers made to look like the original AP brakes of the 1972 race bike especially made by AP.
