Discussion in 'BUILD OFF 10 BIKES' started by Big Ape, May 5, 2015.
Time with the kids is more important and more valuable than anything in the world,but having a ride like that is a good runner-up and I dig the trailer idea.
Checking in on the convertibles for updates!
OK, I know you're out for the build-off, but was wondering how the truck and trailer is coming along.
The lil' truck is coming along great, we are shooting for finishing it around Aug. 1. It is funny, when you rebuild an old hot rod, there are always a few things that you change to suit you a little better. One of them is that we originally built it with a 4 speed and now it will have a th350 trans. I like to go down to Branson occassionally and you can burn up a clutch on those hilly stoplights over a weekend! I will post some pics when we finish the truck. I am still looking for the perfect (cheap) trailer to modify as a bike hauler. This whole trailer idea came to me after I ordered my new rat rod bike t-shirts.............thanks Steve!
Then, I promise that the Space Pumpkin will get done!!
I am looking for a small low-slung boat trailer to modify. I think that 3 rails will be all I really need, and moving the center rail forward a foot or so will give plenty of clearance between bikes.
They actually found orange dust on the moon. Really. I guess this photo of a pumpkin on the moon, might be genuine after. Do pumpkins leave behind orange dust?

Only if it's prehistoric or made of steel and it rusts. I think it was proven on a myth show.
What? Sure there were pumpkins on the moon, that is what made all of the craters!!
Hey, I finished by the deadline, problem is........ it ain't no bike!
Looks good either way.
However it is a rat rod.
Time with family never a bad choice.
It is funny how some people (on some classic hot rod sites) have an issue with the tag, "rat rod"! This truck is a Hodge-podge of miss matched parts that have been turned into a unique vehicle. I am proud to call it a rat rod.
Nice truck, looks allrat to me !
