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....

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!

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:
