I found this sight about a year ago and have lurked here ever since. I found a Felt MP Rat Patrol after I sold my Electra Staight 8 a few years ago and my Rat Fink before that.

To make a long story short, I bought the MPbut it is too small for me. I bought a stem extender to raise the bars but it still is not comfortable. I’m going to with an Electra tank bike for comfort only. Love theFet look and how they do a theme correctly.

this bike has the original black bullet valve stems and small saddle bag. There are a few imperfections which I have tried to capturethe worst of with photos. Mainly the chain guard is slightly bent but could be straightened a bit more. You can see the paint chipped by the rear seatstay and the bending by the bottom bracket. Also there is some paint chipped on the right side of the top tube as shown in one of the photos. There is some finished removed by the shifter as well. Overall the condition is good and is great mechanically. I even re soldered the wiring to fix the light so it all functions correctly.

As far as I know, the previous owner brought the bike from Oregon to Montana. I then purchased it in MT and brought it to Utah. I have a box to ship it in (just received a new MTB and haven’t disposed of the box) but this thing is super heavy and it would cost a bit to ship. I would also worry about the fenders getting bent.

I figured I would see if anyone wants it here because of the love for these types of bikes. I want it to go to a good home and not get destroyed.

That's definitely a nice collectible.

As far as comfort goes, have you tried an Electra Delivery? Out of all the bikes I've owned, the Delivery with a brooks saddle and the front rack removed has been the most comfortable ride in my opinion.

I have not tried a Delivery. I tried a Flying Sue and it was very comfortable. However a Brooks saddle would probably improve the comfort. Thanks for the tip.

Is it still for sale? What’s your asking price?

Also, the Electra Indy and their other tank bikes use the same frame as the Delivery.
