I found the 10-speed chainring on Ebay years ago. I liked it, so bought it, but never had a use for it. So for years I've wanted to build a bike around it. ConTENtious is it. Some of the features are a custom twin stick console shifter, 26" rat-trap, drum brake, suspended sissy, and dual rear brake calipers.
You can see how it came together here: https://ratrodbikes.com/threads/contentious.118942/

I can’t help but think that if this had been an actual production model, it would have been a best seller for sure !! That is one really cool looking bike, well done !!

I try to build Krate killers. Everyone is in love with the Krate. I try to give their eye a reason to wander.
 
Really impressed with all of the details you went through on this build. Absolutely love the results. Great looking bike as a result. Awesome job!!
 
@CRASH , one word; drop-jawed! This one takes the cake. Hard to know where to start in describing it's coolness. A picture is worth 1000 words they say. So I'll just leave this here:

Cong-RaTs on a mind blowing build!

RaT oN~!
 
Def a Krate Killer! All the sizzle of a Dept store bike with all the excess of a Krate. Over the top with the 10 spd, dual rear calipers, front drum, springer fork and sissy, glitter, fade. Over the top in every way and it all looks factory original. One of your best!
