    Selling my custom 64 Firebolt rat bike. Rare 2 year frame that has integrated rear rack/frame. Upgraded to 26x2.125 wheels/tires/chrome fenders. Rear hub /coaster brake (Komet from W.Germany. Quality unit!) and all bearings serviced. Pedals are parts box finds. Have "S" on outer cap but don't know mfg. Horn works. Light could work if a little time spent on it. Chain ring off a girls bike for easy pedaling. Cool cast aluminum F86 Sabre Jet fender ornament made and sold by Joe Buffardi from the Cabe. Rare Schwinn/Whizzer cushioner spring loaded shock absorber mini-ape handle bars. Nice Thompson thick grips made for adult hands. Surprisingly comfortable metal tractor style seat with spring suspension. Of course, if it’s a rat bike it needs pinstriping, done in tasteful red and white hand painted enamel.
    Very smooth riding one of a kind bike with lots of mojo. $425 + $80 shipping. Firm on price (OK, maybe not so firm-bike needs new owner-maybe you??) I'm losing money on what I've got in it at this price not to mention my time. Will discount $50 for anyone that will pick it up (Charlotte NC) so I don't have to hassle with packing, shipping, etc.
    Happy to provide specific pictures or to answer any questions. Accepting Paypal or postal M/O.

    Willing to drive within 100 mi radius of Charlotte to meet or deliver if this would help find a new owner for this cool rat.
