Here it is, started out with what was believed to be a Snyder built 1941 Rollfast.
Add a modern Huffy rear clip, a battery powered Fender micro amp and a guitar rack.

The guitar is a 1961 Epiphone Olympic.
Also, fully restyled rewired and re-imagined by me.

Welcome to the Finished line Carl! Unique and cool theme to your build. Hoping to hear an audio clip some time, but the funky visual is inspiring as well! :thumbsup:

What an incredibly creative and "rockin" build brother!!!
Who else would or could build a freaking tanklifier for their bike!!!!???
Thanks for bringing your skills and fun to the show.
And it's not just cool because of the novelty of it. Naw man, this was a well thought out and executed stretch build that looks killer!!
BRAVO MAN!!!

It does look good, I'd ride it.... Shoot if my hands and brain still cooperated, I'd play it.
