I wasn't sure what to call it, but I'm sending a trophy to the bike that deserved more votes than it got. We all have seen the bike before, the one we know the guy knocked himself out building but gets overlooked by the voting masses. After discussion in the "prize pool" and at OddJob's suggestion, I'm calling it the "Over & Under" award. It's going to be a RAT styled trophy, combining bicycle and trophy bits with a touch of patina thrown in for good measure.

I have a bike in mind.
Classic frame, lotta work stripping and repaint. What about relaced wheels? Check. Any custom fab work done? Yep. Patina? Faux. Anything else? Leather work too! Definitely an overachiever & underappreciated, until now...

I think I've got it narrowed down to 4 candidates. Which goes to show, there are many builds here that had extensive work involved, and that work was so well done that it may have gone unnoticed by the voting public.

Wow, I am honored.

Thank You Carl for this cool award!

It was a fun build to do with a few challenges. With so many skilled builders in the build off I was happy to just participate, get some advice and have fun building something I thought would be cool for me. I was happy to get the new bike to get my beer with, and am floored to get an award!

Thanks Brother!
Much appreciated!

4-votes I cast. One was for Met-Chew's blue demon beer runner, and one other for the restored BA Hawthorne(+finisher #1 & #4)
I also was a bit surprised both did not do better, but this is the way the voting goes.
Enjoyed watching the builds. Way to go Met-chew! Love your blue ride. Rat-a-tat-tat to all participants..
