    I am just curious on how some of these beauties spec out, is anybody else?
    Sometime this weekend, hopefully, I want to try to figure out:
    Overall length
    Ground clearance
    Seat height
    Overall height
    Weight (without rider)
    And any other interesting measurements

    Is anybody else as curious on these things as I am? It might paint a better picture on some of these bikes and how much some of us altered them in the name of rat rodding ;)

    I am interested in that too. What would be interesting for me too would be the overall costs of the builds.

    Ground clearance, lowest point: Chainring: 8" - 200mm
    Seat height: 36.5" - 925mm
