The location of that bell..Absolute genius! The bending of that basket back to original..Perfection. The RRB plate on the front...Doodadery at its best!


In reality I'm a little jealous, $80....Nice score. A bike that is a TRUE RAT, the essence of this site.

Really like those Jack Rabbit tires on the fat chrome rims! Great compliment of new parts added to a very rust-ifying original patina!

Nice work! :41:

I have literally the PERFECT girls Hornet match to this bike - in "as found" condition still sporting nearly the exact same patina - if you have the hankering to add an accompanying ride for a lady friend. I actually have two of them and have not touched either of them yet.

What type of wheels are those and where did they come from? A set similar to those would be perfect for my Spaceliner project.

The perfect fade of the patina is the top of the fork crown into the fork. That's a tough one to faux.
I like it.
