For Build Off 17, I'll offer up a prize to 5th Place Class 1 like I do every year since that is where I placed in my first full build off in BO7 with Flexy.

This years 5th Place Flexy Prize will be one of these blue checkered flag mudflaps with matching jewel.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears @LBCJ has the top-finishing Schwinn frame based build with the 4D Lasalle. If correct, drop me your snailmail address, @LBCJ and I'll shoot you some Schwinn stickers. Well Done to All Finishers!

I would like to award my prize for 17th place to @Shrunken_Head_Pedaler for Hellion. Watching you craft the tank and painting the red scallops inspired me to take on the simple white accents on La Fugazi. Congratulations on building one very cool ride. PM me your address and I’ll have a 122 page Roadmaster bike book compiled by the owner of the Cabe mailed to you. all the best. JA.

Trumpets and fanfare! Streamers and confetti! Roll out the primer red carpet, it's time to announce the winner of the inaugural Good From Afar Award. I wanted to highlight a builder who used a "less is more" philosophy, while utilizing non bike parts in an innovative fashion.
@kram , congratulations! Single and Ready to Mingle is the 2022 GFA winner!

I would also like to award my prize for 17th place to @Shrunken_Head_Pedaler for Hellion, and for identical reasons. Seeing you build your bike around the existing paint, patina and pinstripes was super cool, and that tank is a true work of art all on its own! It takes some artistic skill to pull off such a feat, and you absolutely nailed it! Heck, you've now got me thinking about new ways to sculpt my own custom tanks! You've got an artist's eye, as evidenced by both this year's Build Off bike, and your previous builds as well. For that, I'd like to award you with a commissioned illustration of your choice! It could be an illustration of your Build Off bike, another bike, or something else entirely! Your choice!

Great job on this year's Build Off, and good luck to you on your future builds!
