lets hear it for procrastination!
I finally finished the build off bike, for now atleast. There were a couple of things I didn't get to do, and the bike ended up looking different than what I anticipated. If I hadn't ran out of money, I would have liked to put a pair of truss rods and a cool bullet light on it. The bike turned out just fine though ,it rides very nice.
This bike doesn't really meet the puritans idea of a "ratrod", but its unique and its got attitude. Thanks for looking, good luck building more killer rat bikes.
