Porkchop

Look Ma, No Hands!
Happy Sunday Caber’s! Found this Girls bike last week for a sweet price and couldn’t pass it up! It’s a 1941 Co-Op that was made by CWC so basically it’s a Roadmaster. Rolling on Lobdell rims with new departure hubs. Love the peaked fenders with arched brackets!

Wore out three sets of tires already!
I think, by definition, all of my bikes are technically "rat bikes" since I prefer all my bikes to be crusty originals and not classically "pretty".
I took my 54 out for its first long cruise since acquiring it after a decent mechanical re-grease and rebuild. Rides really good actually!
On period tires as well as it should stay.

Love your 54 phantom tacochris! I must agree with you when it comes to loving the bikes more when they show their age! I must say though I do prefer the aged and loved look over the crusty. To each his own beauty! Love the personal expression that comes through with all the bikes being posted on this thread! I picked up this beaten down Shelby and plan to make it a rider again! Going to use the 41 roadmaster girls bike that was broken in half and welded back together as a parts doner. Rusty Relics Rule!

Ive always been a tad strange when it comes to my deep love for hardcore patina/crust but the good thing is that most folks hate bikes like that so i get alot of really awesome bikes for a lot cheaper when in actuality, one mans negative selling points are my positive buying points.
I always say, there is a butt for every seat, I just prefer my seats rusty. Lol
