    Post Your Final Thoughts

    It's taken me 2 and a half days to go through each of the Class 1 Build Journals. They are all great with a lot of spectacular ideas and individual visions and can now proudly say "I Voted". Best wishes and best of luck to all of you builders for such a great Build Off #14. Glad I could be a...

    Rat Rod Bikes Build Off #14?

    I got mine from a farm equipment salvage yard. It’s a 6 inch diameter 50’s-60’s tractor headlight that I converted to battery powered LED Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This was a fun build off for me and turns out, I really did appreciate having the extra month to pull things together. Best of luck to everyone on their own great builds this time around. You all deserve a pat on the back for a job well done! Here’s my build thread to see how all this came...

    The before and after of the headlight mounting bracket... Just need to fasten him securely and the bike is done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The front fender is actually a rear fender mounted backwards so this hole was used to mount the fender to the frame between the lower rear stays. Decided on this one last night to cover the fender mounting hole. Have to eat all the candy before I can take it apart and mount it though... PEZ...

    Easy fix. At least it didn’t snap right off. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I forgot how much ground clearance I need and hooked the front fender on a speed bump this morning on my ride before work. Back to the garage for a little sheet metal work... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The same thing happened to me too. I discovered that fact on my shakedown ride, lol. Sure turned some heads when they heard me coming though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Back to the Dollar Store for some hood (fender) ornament ideas from the candy aisle. It’s a good thing Halloween is coming, lol. There’s lots to choose from. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Half the afternoon and it’s ready to go back on. If I have a quiet day at work tomorrow I may tackle a taillight contraption of some sort. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Joining two Dollarama COB LED mini work lights together to convert a headlight seems to be a little like neurosurgery. Then again, I don’t profess to have a degree in electrical engineering either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If there was a way to make it a mullet with the sheet metal, I would have definitely tried. But I defer to the “Mullet Fender Master” [emoji119] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Burning the zinc coating off with my barbecue chimney starter filled with kindling seemed easier than dragging out the oxy/acetylene torch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Drilled out, bolted up and installed... I don’t think I have the heart to rat-ify the actual headlight though. Almost feel it is a sacrilege to mess with a 60-70 year old farm relic. Adds a little splash of colour to the build too. The bracket is too shiny and new looking though... Sent from...

    Picked up a livestock gate hinge at my local TSC farm supply store this morning to use as a headlight mounting bracket. $3 and almost ready-made for me and my application. Only have to drill out one hole to 1/2” to fit the bolt on the headlight and add a little bend to it. Sent from my...

    Broke out the back of the bulb and keeping only the lens part, which broke into 4 large pieces in the process. Krazy Glue to the rescue!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
