Bringing new life to the Rat

Post by Paladin on Sun Jan 08, 2012 10:03 pm

This is my forum dedicated to bringing the Rat to a new age. Welcome and enjoy.


Oh and by the way this is probably gonna be somewhat pic heavy


and some organized chaos...







with about a week of painstaking figuring and refiguring and cussing and so on and so forth.....

I am modding it out to sell it because I want a bigger TWO CYLINDER bike. I think that the bike will be worth more as a chopper/bobber than an old rat bike.

Well Dragon if you will remember correctly, this is the reason that I made it in the first place. But decided to just do a bobber rebuild instead of just building another frame from scratch.

I finally got my adjusters mounted. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Next time I will be lazy and just hard mount the swingarm. No scratch that...Next time I will take the little extra time and actually build a true frame jig. Go all out and just make a whole new frame. Tee hee heee. Laughing Twisted Evil afro
