Thought I'd get the ball rolling on this. I'm in for the 2nd Place prize for Class 1, the position I got last year. Also, a special something to a build of my choosing, a battery powered Schwinn wall clock*.

Very cool.
I'll follow suit and do something for the 3rd Place Class 1 prize, since that is where I placed last year.
I'll also 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.

I have a “Trophy” that I built a couple of years ago for an event that didn’t happen. It’s rather bulky but might be shippable if taken apart and sent as a DIY assembly. I’ll have to to take a look at it. Maybe I can come up with a category.

I'm part way through a prize for winner class 2. I've had to come up with something I can post (possibly international) for reasonable cost. So it's not that exciting, but it is unique!
I'll probably finish it this week, then I'll post a picture up.
I still have not finished yours for last year!

As the 2nd Place winner in Class 2 for BO #14 last year, I will be providing a prize for this year's 2nd Place Class 2 finisher. Hopefully it will be FuN-ctional and RaT-isfying !

Being a connoisseur of crustiness, a person of petrified patina, and a raving rust-ationalist I will be giving out the
OddJob Award for the "Most RaT-isfying Rust-ified RaT Rods"!

These bikes, which have a combination of real and faux-tina, epitomize the rat rod bicycle in my own weird RaT-ionalizations.

As in RRB BO #14, I will be giving out " OJ's " for the RaTty RaTs (rusty and crusty) and
for the NaTty RaTs (shiny and glittery). So, mean or clean, you've got a chance!

RaT oN~!

I like the camaraderie here, and the tradition of paying it forward is pretty cool, even if you come in 43rd place!

OK, here we have my prize donation for the first place in class 2.

Its a wall clock!
Top is the hour hand, below the minutes hand.
Brass rings held in place with copper solid rivets.
Aluminium outer frame
Clock face made from rusty steel plate. That's genuine english rust by the way! I had it at the bottom of my garden for 6 months!

OK, it's not bicycle related, but it does have a ratlook face! And most importantly, I can post it abroad (if needed...!)

Hang on I just burned myself on this trophy. Suggestions for a category? Too be fair I usually bring a club trophy to events and there haven't been any so feel like I really need to give away at least one this year. (examples from the cricket cage) Is there any real reason 1st place shouldn't take all the loot? I also have a most votes overall either category can take that one, hang on lemme finish these

OK, change in my plan, the trophy mentioned above is too bulky to ship economically. So I’ll provide a custom license plate similar to the one for 14th place last year.

This year it will be “RRBBO#15” with the winners username and year of your bike plus 2020.
This will be awarded to 15th place Class 1 bike. In case of ties I’ll decide the tie breaker based on the views, reply’s and complexity of the build threads.
