    Here is the Kingfish254 Flexy Fifth Place Prize this year. I give this out because my first full build off bike "Flexy" finished 5th place back in BO7.

    Cool vintage grip shifter grips

    I'm also going to offer up these fat Electra grips to the 3rd Place Class 1 bike.

    since I placed second last year I was planning on making a trophy for this years second place with this pile of bike and lamp parts

    But since there are 2 divisions and we have international competitors
    I will wait until after voting to build it

    OK, I’ll commit to a license plate for the 14th place bike in Division 1. In case of a tie I reserve the right to make the final determination. The plate will be similar to the one posted below with the Build name personalized on top line along with approximate year of bike and 2019. Color selected by winner from standard available colors.
    Hopefully RatRod is still selling the plates when the voting is over.

    I just changed my Electra grip prize to 3rd Place Class 1 so that we have the top three in Class 1 covered.

    I promised these grips as a 3rd place prize, but I am not going to give them to myself. I am going to give them to @Binz . Man, we really went back and forth for 3rd place. It reminded me of BO7 when @CCR and I had a close race for 5th place.

    I'll send you a message to get shipping info.

    CONGRATS!!!!!

    As stated previously I said I’d offer up a Rat Rod Bikes license plate to the 14th place bike. Since there was no 14th place per say according to how the votes fell we did have a tie for 13th place.
    =13th - 19 06. AHH... SHADDUP!!! by Jake Sensi
    =13th - 19 50. TWENTY9 by RonK
    Based on the build thread activity and perceived work involved in the build, I’ve elected to honor the #06 AHH...SHADDUP!!! Build by Jake Sensi. Congratulations to both builders, and lots of great work represented in RRBBO#14.

    The Slow Poke Award:

    “Slow and steady wins the race” says the old proverb.

    Well, @The Renaissance Man has proven that this year with his winning entry, ’Blackbird’.

    He was the first to upload in class 1 ‘Build Journals’ and the last to upload in class 1 ‘Finished Bikes’ before the deadline… and took the win in Class 1… well done!

    So here is your ‘Slow Poke’ award…

    US Letter sized for you to print if you wish.

    Glen.
