This one stretched in more ways than one! Dig the rat-ina rub on the paint and poker chip medallions! Lot's of custom touches, which is not a surprise,just fun to see revealed! :41:
 
Just uploaded the DETAILS pics to my second post.

Thanks brother! Squeaked in with my morning pics, but well worth it.
 
Sorry I didn't keep up with the build thread as this bike was progressing! As always, your builds leave me scratching my head right up until the moment you put the finishing touches on. Uncle Stretch looks awesome! I think you picked out the right photo as your header image. We get to see the drive side, but those tail pipes are visible for all to see! Great job Kingfish!

Thanks BFTD, maybe I'll name next years build Head Scratcher! :D

Yeah, watching your last few builds feels like watching one of those videos on YouTube where some guy is making something, but I don't quite get what they're making or why they're making it that way, but then once they show the end result, I'm like, "Oh that is coooool!"
 
All of my RatRodBikes Build Off 17 build brothers should be out riding the trophies they've been working on for the past 4 months. It was an honor to have fun with you all for another round!!!

This gives you a sense of scale for this bike. Saw this XTRACYCLE EdgeRunner on my ride and sure enough, Uncle Stretch is just about exactly the same size!!!!

The grey and red compliment each other so well. So many awesome details but the speedo assy is a small and very cool one I missed earlier. Well done KF. Ride it like you stole it.

Thanks, I really love this color combo too. That speedo is from Gaskill's Dead Little Dove build from the Anything Goes Build Off of 2009. I've had it for a number of years and I'm glad I finally found the right bike to put it on
 
I just weighed Uncle Stretch and he comes in at a svelte 82.8 pounds
 
Amazing Ride Kingfish!

I am always impressed by your bikes. This year's Vintage styled frame with a whole bunch of extras is no exception.

I Love It! Congrats!

Thanks man! I love this bike! I'd love to see it side by side with the stretched Double Down build you did!
 
Get out and ride your participation trophies!
Here are some pics from what turned into a bit of an artsy ride yesterday
