    It has been an exciting adventure this year. Started several projects and finally gravitated towards the "Flat-Tracker" themed bike. Wish we could enter up to three each year. All work was performed by myself with much encouragement from friends, forum members, and strangers on the street. The Flat-Tracker has many outfits to wear. It can change from a big-sprocket ...high gear flyer to a slow cruising bike with the Dana 3 speed tranny. The propane flame-thrower is a feature that excites the crowds and children with long puffs of flame & smoke! The change-over time for that is less than five minutes. It is primarily going to be used during the special fall Rat-Rod Cruise-In's in September ...looking forward to the James Dean, Gas City,(Ducktail RUN) & other festivals coming up soon. It will be a great way to promote RatRod bikes in general.

    Test ride moments ago without propane flame. Very good ride...Two-speed yellow banded rear end makes it doable!.

    That's a wicked bike. You look good in leather, I mean..., in a manly way, (did I just say that?)!

    Good luck! Rg
