Been lurking for couple of years, thought it was time to participate. Actually live hr north of Seattle in rural area. Collected antique bikes 25 years ago but sold collection and been away from riding and collecting for a long time. Five years ago I started riding seriously again. Been real serious, 40,000 + miles last 5 years! Ride mostly all gravel now. Anyway collecting bug never goes away, started looking at antique bikes again. Ratrodbikes on net really intrigued me. Years ago I got rid of cool antique bikes cuz I thought I could never find parts to build it correct. Rat bikes you can be creative and do whatever, more fun than pushing nice complete bike into collection to sit. Been collecting original and building rats for about 1 1/2 years now. I pretty much ride and or work on bikes every day being retired.You guys build awesome bikes and looking forward to being part of community.
