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…
We just received a fresh batch of our 2011 Rat Rod Bikes “Speed Forum” T-shirts. This new order is printed on Gildan 6.1oz Ultra Cotton black, brown and blue shirts. Limited supplies available in the brown and blue colors. Price per shirt is $25.00 shipped within the U.S. Get em while they’re hot!
Here’s your chance to show off your bike and your photography skills. Each member gets to submit one final photograph into the contest. Twelve photos will be chosen for a possible 2012 RRB calendar. Get creative, have fun and don’t forget to submit your final photo by November 20th, 2011. Click here…
Back in 1991 I started my education as a graphic designer and then later my career as a designer in 1996. Throughout all of these years I have been a Mac user and have relied heavily on the incredible products that Apple has provided to design and earn a living for my family. It was not unexpected to hear about Steve Job’s passing today, but is was definitely shocking. As a Mac Pro, iMac, iPhone and iPad user I can honestly say that they are the best computing and communication devices I have ever used. Heck, this very site was designed and built on an iMac. Thank you Steve Jobs for all that you have done…you will be greatly missed.
