    I invite you to visit my Build thread for more details and rationale regarding the outcome of this ‘34 Schwinn The World project.

    The tank construction and RaT-ina and use of the old iron fabric cord are my favorite parts of this multi-RaT-cited build!

    My favorite build of yours to date (parrot not-with-standing ;) ). And the tires are awesome on there, btw. :thumbsup:
