My favorite Rat rode today. I couldn't resist since mocking it up the other day. Seems to be Ok as is but I still have more to do with it! It's goin' to be a little polished up with aluminum & mirror shine parts but Rat Rod Spirit . I am No Great Photographer or anything but I love this shot!View attachment 1397114
I do too but it worries me about rubbing it off some. It's cleared but still. I know it's a rat bike & all but that big wide striped seat is actually comfortable & springy. I may end up making a diy cushioned slip cover for it after I touch up chipped areas & put 1or 2 Good coats of clear over it just for ride purposes. I have a Lucky 7 steel rod I want to add to it but Now I can't find the damn thing. I am changing some stuff but holding on to everything as it was; Even the F86 Sabre that Joe Bufardi initialed is goin' back on the front fender. It partly played part in me addin' touches of aluminum; pedals, stem Not Shown Yet, & maybe even the Nexus 7 hub wheel I have.I really like the painted seat pan.
Don’t be shy... your ride is smooth!Changed up the seat and used a lucky 7 seat post on the 1946 world imperial. Amazing how well this bike still rides! Should be working on my phantom but there’s just something about this bike that’s drawing me in! Love it and all it’s flaws or is it life’s war wounds! Lmao!
