Saw the listing and thought “what cool bike!”!… kept revisiting the posting and became more and more intrigued. While researching the specifics of the Speedster, found the Rat Rod Bike Forum and its expansive information resource and inspired camaraderie.
Payday arrived, met the seller… here I am!

… it didn’t stray too far from home… still in MN!
I recently got back into cycling and have also been wrenching on other CL bike finds to fulfill the needs of my growing children so I thought it would be a fun summer project for me…. Thinking back, wrenching on bikes and riding the neighborhood is what we did as kids in the 70’s since we didn’t have the internet and video games to distract us!
Someone had rodded this bike years ago to narrow drops and moved the original grips and brake levers to the lower position giving it a stance which initially caught my eye. My intent is to keep the setup “as-is” with a few upgraded components and see how it rides.
