    From my understanding there have been a few stand outs in the odd job award lest see who you have picked Mr. Rattastic. I personally would have had to vote for the one liner .

    Okay I'm throwing prizes into the pot..
    Ive always enjoyed the wacky prizes that come out of here,and it adds extra fun.

    I came across these on fleecebay,and thought would make a great prize.Chunk of raw metal to hang on your wall.
    Price is great for USA but not for abroad.Shipping is just Route 66 robbery.
    So I decided that the winner gets a choice, either the item below if you are in the USA, or a Tee with your winning bike printed onto it(If winner is out of USA you have NO choice.The printed tee will be your prize.)
    The Tshirt will be of your color and size choice.

    OR Rat bike,the guy says there are some defects?Looks like he is knew at laser cutting. So I like to give people who give it a go a chance... s-l1600 (1).jpg
    And second place gets a choice of one of these Tshirts. You pick your slogan,size and color.
    Once you have chosen your design I will let you know the colors that are available. s-l1600.jpg

    If you want to cut down on the shipping costs for the shirts to europe (if there is a winner from this side of the big pond) we can do this through my account on spreadshirt.de...
    And may I suggest to give a shirt with one of the two metal-logos instead of a shirt with the winners bike?!

    My idea was put the pic of thr winning bike on a tee,and then either on the sleeve or back. Have written rat rod bikes buildoff # 11 with either Ist place or winner.?
    The tees cost 30e to do this and postage is cheap.
    The metal logo to ship from usa to europe is over 70euro? People are crazy...

    Finally have time to start experimenting with ideas for the First Place Trophy. It used to be tradition that the previous winner of the Build Off made the trophy for the next winner. Can't remember when it stopped, but I'm excited to bring the tradition back. Here are the parts I'm going to start playing with. We'll see what I end up with.

    My First Place Trophy idea revolves around the top tube art piece that I used for VerBoten where I used a hub with spokes running parallel to the axle to form a cage.

    But in this case I am going to mount the axle to this cast iron star base. and have the spoke cage form a trophy cup.

    That is as far as I got so far. Still have to decide what may go inside the cup. Got a few ideas, but Queenfish wants to go out to dinner.

    Hey man, cool idea. Wondering....what if you ran a cross pattern on the spokes like on a wheel, might support your chain ring better?

    That first proof of concept pass only had half the spokes in to see if I was going in a cool direction or not.

    I decided to put a headlight into the trophy and make it work so that it will be a lamp too. I need stronger batteries, but this bad boy still lights up.
    The lens side of the light will be on top of the chainring and the bullet section will be below.

    I decided it needed a better chainring

    Oh yeah, and another good reason to use the hub is this. That's it for tonight.

    The Prize for the COOLEST LIGHT AWARD is this funky vintage emergency light. It even has a motor to spin the police light around.

    [​IMG]



    I was looking over the finished gallery and diving into the Finished threads to determine the coolest light and it wasn't easy.

    But then I got down to #47 in the list and immediately knew I found the winner. To me, this is one of the sickest lights ever!! I love the shape, the amber lense, the paint, and the pinstriping. Oh yeah and the bike it's attached to ain't too shabby either.

    So the winner of this funky emergency light is non other than @gowjobs and his Schwinn Drop Out!

    Thanks! And to think I almost left that headlight off the build! I'm glad I was able to do a quick battery/LED conversion and find that brake bridge to mount it with.
