Don't be so sure about that, I rode my tallbike around for a year before anyone told me there was a guy who has been building them for years less than a mile from where I work. I rode that bike all over and hundreds of people talked to me about it and asked me questions about it. I rode it to several bike shops, a half dozen critical mass rides, the bike collective etc... Nobody ever said a word. I still don't know exactly where this mystery builder lives, I've just heard a couple of people mention his wacky bikes. I'll bet unless you live in a town of less than 5,000 people, there's someone that's into rat rods, even if they don't know what to call them.
