Re: The 'Rickety Ratt

Im glad to be in this build thanks for.. being glad for me aswell.. :roll: I are not good with words. :mrgreen:
Yes karfer, them puppies are all honed.. up. lol ANYWAYS.

Heres the bike that was started 2 years ago.. THe berring cup was cracked and i just let her sit. was to lazy to fix her.

Tried to sell it, almost did, glad i didnt tho.. Heres the bike as it was before i started..

Finally got some pics and found the cam lets let this buildoff begin. MAY THE BEST RATTER WIN!!! :D

Re: The 'Rickety Ratt !!-UPDATED W/PICS 7-21-!!

Whoa!! new rule!!! please no more of this:
PICT0016-2.jpg

I'm not sure if I'm disturbed, or jealous, I may just be permanently scarred. this one goes along with my "no speedo's for men over 12 unless you're on the Olympic Swim, or Diving Team, and only at the meet" rule, and my "no tube tops for girls who weigh more than 175lbs". :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

After letting it sit the suggested half hour with the stripper on it, i took it up to the quarter carwas and pressurewashed off all the acidy gunky paint mess..
then got caught up in building and got here...
