24" Roadmaster stretched, chopped, lowered, drop looped, raked, side carred, intensely lit, air horn with compressorred, Triiger suicide shifted, twisted spoked, drum braked, etc. plus mostly it's kinda I am really happy about it and the side carrier is custom fitted to the cute doodle so i can ferry her around at events. Even the after dark needs high visibilty pub crawler kind. I'll get a good one sooner than later
my bad, almost forgot the before pic

The sidecar machine is beauty to behold, it's gold old, and ready to roll!

Geeze, how much PBR had I I have . ?
Man, it just really is. I can't wait for the next show season. That second lamp is superfluous and seperate from the others as a backup just in case I finally kill my battery.

The way I did that cod lamp it puts plenty of light out front to ride the bike.

Speaking of your battery, I'm guessing it is stored in the saddle bag? 6 volt? Rechargeable?
I like the 'cow catcher' front on the side car. When you stole the folding chair, was the Church Basement Lady still in it? (Minnesota joke, don'tchaknow)

The 'views' might lie. They don't count the 3 - 4 times we actually have to re-load and blow up the Final Photo to see all that is going on. You definitely built a rat rod bike! No doubt about it!

I used a 12 volt lawn mower battery so I could use the dippy 12 volt led accessories in auto parts stores to upgrade lamps and run the compressor for the air horn, plus a new one is only $30. That and I could use 30 amp relays and an automotive fuse block. I have had Pearl for 330,000 miles so those are things I understand. I tend to leave the doors open on my truck at work so I wasn't worried about those lamps killing a battery. Pearl is getting long in the tooth so I have had to replace all the interior lights.

Those are great chairs. I found them for $3 each at an estate sale. That was a no brainier. I still have one complete one for myself. About the details. I just don't know how I could ever get all of them easily seen in one photo and catch my favorite lines on the bike.

I'll admit I'm not much of a rust and crust kind of guy, but this thing is krazy kool!

The nice thing about the bare look is that it doesn't hide all the work that was done. I dig it.
At a show and someone says "what is that? Where did you get it?" I like being able to just say go look a little closer.

That's what I lke about a ratty finish on a built up bike, it inherently reveals the fabrication and shows the builders process

To be fair I had to out do my "no girls allowed he man women hater's club tree house bike". There might be a theme here. *Hysterical laughter, and some bacon or something
I should really clean that carburetor. That's absolutely my favorite grocery getter

This is like beyond toast. All the thread is also gone. This is like what toast eats instead of toast

I had a different character building excersise planned for this afternoon but whatever. Bet it doesn't fall off again
IMG_20200824_183733.jpg

Imma go ahead and get the other side now while I am at because, at this point what difference does it make

To be fair I'll never have to be that guy at the car show saying, "Where did my NOS pedals go?"
Technically this warranty work belongs here. i mean i already "finished" and things happen.
