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.
This week we launched a new sister site called RatRodBMX.com. This new community focuses on the vintage BMX bikes and racing of the 70s and 80s. The goal is to offer a safe, family friendly environment to share, discuss and learn about all things vintage BMX. Come on over and check out what’s going on!
We’re all out looking for cool bikes…it’s in our blood. Check out this thread that was started to post your best find in 2011.
Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas, a happy Hanukkah and a great New Year. Thanks for helping make Rat Rod Bikes the best cruiser community on the web!
Once again we had a great response to our 2011 RRB photo contest. The top pics were chosen and are now captured in the 2012 RatRodBikes.com wall calendar. This is a cool way to dress up your shop or office. Click here to order today!
We’ve got some exciting news. We just added Jonny True Torch to our line up of site sponsors, and as a result, we’re reviewing one of Johnny Severin’s radically cool hand built 26″ chromoly looptail Webco Pro cruiser frame and forks. Even if you weren’t into BMX back in the 70s and 80s you’ll still be able to appreciate the quality and craftsmanship that goes into all of Johnny’s parts. Click here to see more radness.
That’s right, the bidding cap has been removed and you’ve got until 6:00 pm CST to put your bid in to win the 2011 RRB Auction Bike. Check out all of the info here.
After much deliberation…the thirteen finalists in the 2011 Photo Contest have been chosen. This was not an easy task. So many great bikes and so many fantastic photos. These shots will be used to create the 2012 RRB Wall Calendar which will be available in a few weeks. Until then, click here to check out the shots that made it to the top.
Seeing as how this is a community of vintage and custom bike builders, it only makes sense that once a year everyone joins in on a single project with the intention of building one cool ride. The mission this time around was to build a replica of the boardtrack inspired bike illustrated in the RRB “Speed Forum” T-shirt design. It was fun watching everyone come together to build this bike and it’ll also be fun watching the auction for it starting December 1st. Check out the build thread…
