    Gemellow Yellow 11.jpg OK, here goes, my first ever Rat Rod Bikes build off entry. I'm starting with a rusty old Elgin frame a buddy of mine had purchased to harvest some parts off of it. I am in the parts gathering phase of the project now. Good luck to everyone, I hope you all like the finished product.

    I found a springer fork & 3 speed wheelset. To that, added yellow tires for inspiration. The fork is not fitting too well, perhaps a different headset.
