    Looks very nice! I would bet it rides well too. I like the stance it has with the aeat all the way down.

    That's the way I like them too. There is not even a seat post. The seat guts are mounted directly through the seat tube. Allows for an additional 1 1/2 inches lower than if on a post.

    5'9" 30 inch inseam..... I don't care about ergonomics and I don't ride enough for it to matter. It's just a look I have liked since doing them like that in the late 50's.

    More of a hot rod. The term rat rod gets thrown around way too much.

    I would agree with you. Hot Rod would better describe it.
