Congrats again brother!
Great trophies 1HP and Whitecoyote!
Finally finished the Blue Ribbon Trophy today.
Had to layout and drill the chainring
Painted some parts
Then do a little starsNbars wire wheel treatment to the base.
Brought it inside to show off to Queenfish after I finished personalizing it for TRM.
Here are the final pics before I ship it out this week. Sorry it took so long.
CONGRATULATIONS Jim @The Renaissance Man ON YOUR BLUE RIBBON BIKE!!!!! Elgin DecoLuxe was a beautiful bike and a blast to follow.
Here is the final video of the Trophy in action. The freewheel also works.
This prize should have its own build thread!
Thanks man. In the past, the winner trophy did have it's own build thread and it was usually going on concurrently with the Build Off. I'll see if I can dig them up. Since I got such a late start on your trophy, I sorta co-opped this thread to document the building of it. I hope you continue the tradition next year.
Awesome job on the trophy! It's super cool.
So the previous winner makes a 1st place trophy? Is that the tradition?
It was for a while, but died out a couple of years back.
Thank you @Funkme for the 'RAT BIKE' plaque!
Will look even better when it starts to rust....

Sorry that it took me a few days to post this picture, but here's the prizes for the Decoluxe from @Funkme and @kingfish254 along with the bike! There were some small extra goodies that Brian also threw in but in my haste, I forgot to show them. Thanks again y'all!
I have to say that Brian went over and beyond all expectations for the trophy! wow
Your welcome Jim. Glad you like the trophy. Your build deserved a cool trophy. Hope you continue the old tradition next year.
To go along with your TRM DecoLuxe Trivia, here is some trivia regarding the trophy.
I've hidden 6 builds into that trophy.
