    On the Chinese calendar, this is a Year of Metal Rat, starting from the 2020 Chinese New Year on Jan. 25 and lasting to 2021 Lunar New Year's Eve on Feb. 11.

    Metal Rat? Are you kidding me?? :13:

    We have to somehow incorporate this into our RRB Bo #15 this summer! My mind is already swirling with prize ideas, categories for builds, and other funky weird stuff like that.

    Anybody else? Bueller? Let's get the ol' brain a stormin' and see what we can come up with. :nod:

    What if every bike is required a part from Asia? That shouldn’t be too hard to do....

    CHINESE NEW YEAR 2020 ANIMAL: YEAR OF THE RAT ZODIAC SIGN, MEANING EXPLAINED

    BY ANDREW WHALEN ON 1/25/20 AT 8:00 AM EST

    “Similar to astrology, the zodiacal Rat is laden with multiple layers of symbolism. Associated with the hour before and after midnight, the rat typically represents new beginnings. They are powerful symbols of fertility, wealth and plenty, so people born in the Year of the Rat are considered to be optimistic, easy-going and kind, if a bit too direct.”

    “Lucky associations with the Year of the Rat include the numbers two and three, and the colors gold, blue and green. Meanwhile, the colors yellow or brown and the numbers five and nine can be considered unlucky.”

    Too true, so many rescued bikes!
    So we have the beginnings of a set of requirements: bike or trike, with gold, blue and/or green, yellow and brown need not apply.

    Uh oh, does patina and rust count as brown?
