Default Build off trophy 2016

My plan was to let the winner post the first pics of this conglomeration of used up parts, but Chancer asked me to start a thread on it. The trophy shop FINALLY finished the plaque for it today so here it is.
The parts are as follows
Piston and crank from my "what would it take?" Nitro motor
Stock GX 160 cams
11 tooth Noram clutch bell from my go kart
Sprocket from a scooter
Base from one of my old motocross trophies
Hand made stainless cup to cap it all off

I made the cup on top from a piece of a stainless bar I use at work to beat the crap out of things with. I didn't machine the top edge so you can still see some impact marks on it. If you look closely at the top of the piston you can see where it was juuuuust kissing the head from running it with .017 piston to head clearance.

I think it will have to go to a trophy shop to get each new winners name put on. I don't know how they do it, but it's all one piece.

Chancer probably got arrested for littering, lol

Not to get him out of KA, but just to get him out of litterers prison.

Nice job on the trophy Nate!

That's a nice Silver one. Who gets the Gold trophy?

And do we need to gather money to get Chancer out of jail for disposing of a mattress on the side of a road?

FHB is The Man!!! Guys he Volunteered to make this thing. And did it for the Good of DIY.
Thanks to Flyinghillbilly.
That Trophy is Going to look SO GOOD on my Mantle!

BTW we returned the mattresses to Wal Mart and ordered Different ones on line. No Disposal Fee Online! So I am not in Littering Prison. Ca probably Executes Polluters anyway!
