Hard to believe a year has gone by already since the last Rat Rod Bikes Build Off. We’re over 10,000 subscribers strong now and lots of new folks are going to try their hand at building a cool cruiser this year. Many have collected parts and come up with a plan over the winter and now it’s time to start building. In order to participate you need to read the build off rules and then start a build diary in the build off section. Check out all the winners from previous build offs here. (a big thanks to yoothgeye for putting that together).
Here’s your chance to purchase your own handmade 2012 RatRodBikes.com custom brass headbadge. We are now taking pre-orders on these beauties and they will be $45.00 each shipped within the U.S.A. They will look just like the badge pictured above without the “Prototype” designation. We will run the pre-order process for two weeks and then stop taking orders and begin production.

Many of you have been gathering up parts since last summer just waiting for the next RatRodBikes.com Build Off. Last year we had 106 finished bikes entered into the competition and the creativity and talent displayed was insane. We will begin the 7th annual build off on May 1st so gather up what you can and finalize your plans now to be ready for what’s sure to be another great contest.
What happens when you are inspired by 70s pro-stockers and you’ve got an itch to build a cool bike…well of course, you build a Pro-Stock Swingbike. Okay, most of us probably wouldn’t have put these two together, but thankfully forum member “bikebuilder” did. Check out his mad creation that you just can’t help but thinking….man that is really cool.
