    RAT / ROD MODEL KIT BASH CHALLENGE

    @handyandy1100 , I have to take a shot at one of these for my great grandson, he'll be one on the 19th of March. Maybe I'll start with a Pinewood Derby car kit. Hmmmm.... Then add some bigger wheels and tires. Yours turned out great! Ian has it right ^ , family heirloom for sure!

    Beauty! Dig the Rat Fink mojo and the tire selection. And a '40s Monarch? What's not to like?!

    Goodwill Hunting Knife Found a display spot for the GHK. Built / refab-ed this table centerpiece a couple years ago; also made from a Mesquite tree. The knife rests on it's base. Deadliest 'table knife' known to man.

    Into The Silence

    @GuitarlCarl , somehow my eyes connect the dots between that cool wheelset, the seatpost, and frame gusset in every photo of this bike. Really dig it!

    @ifitsfreeitsforme , if you use an aluminum handle, maybe a couple drops of JB Weld between the cheek and gum will give you that true tobacco flavor. And without lightin' up. Apologies to Walt Garrison...
