This is my first finished Rat Rod Bike entry. It started life as a Sears Spyder in about 1968. The previous owner(s) had taken pretty good care of it although somewhere along the line it had been sanded and painted. The seat had a thick piece if vinyl glued over the original cover and the chrome was starting to show some rust. Since it isn't a highly collectable model and had all ready been altered I didn't feel bad about making my own changes. https://ratrodbikes.com/threads/sears-scorpion-aka-stinger-ray-🦂.118949/

Thanks to everyone for their comments and advice during the build.
