    This year, The OddJob Award will have a new twist ! It will still be given out for bikes, which have a combination of real and faux-tina, and epitomize the rat rod bicycle in my own weird rat-ionalizations.

    Instead of my previous award of the Weird-Ohs ad from the 1964 March edition of Hot Rod Magazine, each recipient will receive a custom rat - ina "RaT oN~! " magnet produced with RaT-iculous care in the BACK40 !

    As with all our RaT RoDs, a common household item was used as the basis for this award; RaT-ified for your RaT-isfaction!

    And.....not only Ratty Rats, but Natty Rats also will be honored this year! The faux-tina 'RaT oN!' will be given out to the rusty Ratty variety, and a couple of my favorite Natty (clean, more civilized) RaTs will get a shiny version of the 'RaT oN!' magnet~!


    Each award is unique, just as each winning build is uniquely designed. RaT oN~!

    Here are the two variations of the award....Ratty....

    And....Natty !

    Excellent choices!
    I love the new trophies. I wonder how many people will see what they are made from? I plan to steal that idea for a bike tag someday.

    Thanks B! It was a fun project for a couple days after my builds were done. License plate would work well....even comes with two holes standard!

    Found the perfect spot for Oddjob art. May take you a second to find it with all the stickers.

    Got mine yesterday. Stuck it to the old tool box.

    Had it on the side with some other rat shwag but figured it needed it's own drawer.

    Maybe, do a switch box: to screw plate onto. Magnets definitely won't hold it while riding.

    Thanks again Lee "OJ" .

    There are a couple holes in it already. You could just use baling wire and " wire it" to where ever too. But that probably wouldn't meet "code". :21:
