As @Glen once said when I posted my first build off, "Is that the starting photo, or the finished photo?" :bigsmile:

Will be fun watching what you turn this '4 wheeler' into. RaT oN @Skipton !

Thanks for all the love everyone!
I've got some fun ideas for this. Got some new rubber on all four corners this morning. Love me some Fat Franks! This should make the “bike” a lot easier to ride. All ready rolls better.
Never had to use a bottle jack to swap a bike tire. 😉🤣

Don’t worry I’ll go through all the bearings before I’m done with this build. But they are super smooth even though this has sat outside it’s whole life.

I got this 1964 Studebaker Hawk grille cheap on eBay this week.
The width is perfect and the chrome should clean up nice.
I’m thinking I like it mounted up high with headlights below and maybe some lights in the grille plus a lower push bar. With running lights

By my deeds I honour him, V8!

That was the first thing to come to mind.
I would love that grille more towards the bottom. Then a V8 beer cooler with smokestacks protruding on the sides.
Sorry I just let myself go.

That is one awesome wagon! Love the Fat Franks.
Can't wait for more updates Skipton.
