I need the top 10 to email me a high res picture of their bike for the trading cards. It can be vertical or horizontal. I also need a short description of the bike for the back of the card. Also include your City/State. It should take a week or two. My email is twcl2348 at yahoo dot com.

Sent. Thanks Terry!

You will have mine, just as soon as I can take Flexy down to the beach for some Speedo shots!! :shock: :p I think that will show off the seat the best!

All, I just thought of something for the playing card pictures, since the pictures will be much smaller on the cards, try and get a shot of your bike that takes up most of the picture so your ride doesn't look too small on the card. Just a thought.

Well, they aren't playing cards, but more like trading cards...It will be a set numbered 1-10....I can crop the pics as needed as long as it is a full res image.

Sensor, you're welcome. It was a little bit of work, but I had already been tracking the votes anyway. Thanks for catching that mistake for me, I was enjoying a barrel aged stout that night. Thanks also for contributing the cool stuff to the prize pot. I know it had been done before, but somehow it wasn't done last year.

It took a while, but I finally built "Rocka-Fella" five build offs later in BO12 , rather than BO8.

"Look out for my Rocka-Fella 8 build next year!!! :wink: :wink: Peace on Earth! Good will to Ratters!"

WOW!...106 FINISHED BIKES! In the words of Archie Bunker: THOSE WERE THE DAYS

2017:
Winter BO AND BO12..109 finished bikes total.

To many build offs...to close together.
