I can appreciate a rat bike.Most of the time they are just stripped down without fenders and chain guards and high rise bars.Those are not impressive.RRB has some wild customs though .
I'll say RRB has some wild customs

If you feel artistic then a customized bike is an expression of who you are and how you see life. We live our lives through our senses and our physical world. I enjoy the curve of a raw curved bike frame or fender like I enjoy a cold brew or a hand on a sweet round hip of another! Peace out ✌️

Whatever is in your garage or work space makes you happy... Go with it!
I also liked the comment about having a beer in one hand and having something curvy in the other.

Nice Bike, there's something truly special about 26" Fastbacks, best riding 5 speed I've ever had , didn't think the bananna seat would be comfortable, (got me shopping for a 20" stingray) ,if schwinn would have made them, they would have likely out sold the Varsity, riding with drop bars is bad for the testicles Just ask Lance , or is it the spandex :)

How many guys did like me and made choppers by extending the forks with another set of forks. I'd loved my chopper! Of course I was 8 years old. I cut off one set of forks and pounded them on the other set with a hammer. LOL I wrecked several times because they fell off while I was doing a wheelie. Kids!

Why be defensive about cutting up a bike?

I was into hot rods for a long time & occasionally met up with someone who thought that it was a sin to alter anything. They were usually people who have no creative talent. Bikes are no different. There's nothing wrong with cutting something up & changing things. These things are meant to enjoy. I would hesitate cutting up something that is truly rare or in great original condition but there are many bikes out there that are easily replaced. No offense intended.
wow, after reading all of the responsives which I fall into as well im hesitant to share or boost about anything I do with others now with the feeling im an idiot for doing so
