The forum software will be upgraded on Saturday (April 4). During this time the site may be down for a period of time to make the change. Thanks for your patience as we do the work!
The new forum software has been installed. We are still working on a few issues...some images not displaying, spacing, colors, etc. Please send Rat Rod any issues that you may encounter when using the forum. Thanks!
Now that cooler weather is here I can finally enjoy wrenching . Micro Flo was stripped bare and primed and started mocking up. Bolted on higgins razor stem , wald handle bars , small coke bottle grips , Tricycle truss rods with higgins bracket and unknown vintage light with glass lens . Starting on rear next .
Going to recover the youth Mesinger seat this evening . I like to use the Shoe Goo that member us56456712, turned me on too. It lets you work with the leather for a little bit while you stretch it around the edges .
I have a lot of body work ahead of me , but planing on black frame with red accents followed by 2K clear coat and with brick tires . The mock up wheels and tires are both vintage Schwinn items that were on it when I got it . I'll put them back in the parts bin .
Almost done . Need to put head badge on ,finish strut mounts , install light and battery back . Water slide for chain guard should be here tomorrow . Also need to cut another link out of the chain . If I could just get that Colombo bike to stop flirting with her long enough to get her attention I could finish her up !
