    After eyeballin all of the fine creations that are taking shape I have become inspired to throw my rat in the ring "baddumpump"
    I bought this frame quite a while ago with the intent of doing a full on stock restoration. I think it will be a better Rat 8) becideds it costs way too much for shiny stuff like paint and chrome
    1937 Dayton/Huffman twinflex. I don't know exactly where I am goin with this, but I will keep you posted.[​IMG][/img]

    Thanks for all of the positive comments.
    Hey Karfer, your cycletruck is what inspired me to use this frameset. After all whats the point of havin it sitting around when you could be riding it?
    For all the vintage bike Nazis "I will not make any changes that can't be undone" But I probably will post a pic on the CABE just for shock value :lol:

    I have gone back and forth, but I think I am going to leave the original paint on the frame for now. It would be cool to have it nice and shiny, but I hate scratchin shiny paint and I want to ride this one. I really like the picanic cruiser though. reminds me of Jack Blacks bike in Nacho Libre
    :p
