    This bike says Ratted Muscle written all over it. Great looking bike. The shaggy banana is my favorite.

    Your pictures are Art.

    Good Job on this one.

    Building... riding...

    thanx,all I was thinking about was to make sure I gave it a muscle stance at the start,I think the ape/fork combo did it and from then on its all good,I wish I could have put a fatter tire on the rear but no room,as is with a 20x2.125 there is only 2mm gap at the chainstays,and cheers for the art picture compliments,I planned to keep it clean and simple with pic's but I always start getting creative.

    thanx,like a hobo it can take the knocks and keep on going,glad I stopped when I did as there is a fine line on adding just enough and then adding too much and destroying the look

    thanx,I dig it too they just look right all jacked up and the new wheel/old fender to me gives it a no nonsense look when it comes to the rubber hitting the road

    The rat-isfaction meter is dialed to 11 on this one! Love the rust-tina you did on this, and your doo-dads, seat cover....in a class by itself. Now you have me re-thinking doing a shiny build next year....as one of our member's tag line says,
    " rust is my favorite color" Rat on!

    Rat-tastic! That tail light is a cool add on. I'm liking that Bosch headlight, too.

    thanx,its a shame the head lights beat up,I had a go at removing the dents and creases but no room to get pin hammer in there but in the end it suits a ratty/beatup build
