Build thread here. Simple quick build. Just how I like em.

My 2 inspirations for this bike were my late Great-Uncle Touchy a lifelong Kansas farmer and what I'll call the "Kansas farm truck".

Video here http://youtu.be/xhWG6Tvsa-8

Re: Uncle Touchy's Back Roads Bomber

Nice tribute. One of the best 'theme' bikes I've seen. Nailed it!

Best of luck!

Re: Uncle Touchy's Back Roads Bomber

Randy, this is a great build, you got my vote! Really reminds me of the old 50 Chevy I once had. Something about a truck in a framer's field. That makes me want to buy another old truck, maybe I'll have to steal your idea and build my own version off it.(if you don't mind) Some times it's hard to get a good idea like this living in the city.

Re: Uncle Touchy's Back Roads Bomber

I like the way you were able to copy elements of the old truck into the bike. Think I agree that you need obtain the truck and get it running, what a great bike hauler it would make. Really nice result in a short amount of time.
