    Keep in mind...this is the first badge to be produced and is basically a prototype of things to come.

    That adds to the value on this one I would think.

    Our goal initially with auctioning it off was to figure out a good price point on these, but after listing it I quickly realized that with it being the first badge, it wasn't going to be a good example for pricing them...ha ha! :lol:

    I wonder how many are holding out for that last minute and become the owner of the very first RRB badge!

    As a cheapskate, I would pay a max of, say, $25 shipped for one of these. Others might pay more.

    To protect whoever spends the money to be first you should make some minor change to the production models or be prepared to start stamping serial numbers on them. :shock: I'm down for a production version.

    I'd be in for one or two, but it would have to be at a "mass-production" pricepoint. My last build didn't cost what the protptype is going for on the 'Bay!!!!

    That's too darn cool!! Has a medallion of sorts been thought of already? Something to affix to the bike itself?

    That is a sweet badge. It is like pharmaceutical industry, the pills only cost .04 each, but the first one cost 20 million to make. Good luck to the winner, if I did not just by some other stuff here, I would be in for it.

    Silver plating would be much easier. I have a kit from Caswell Plating and can easily plate brass with silver. Gary

    I plated a little piece of copper a few weeks back with nickel....came out OK, but it took time...not that hard...
