    The bike has been rolled off the block and the big winner is Tomatocity with a winning bid of $500. I would like to thank everyone who was involved with this bike- garagegoon for starting the project, pick for the powder coating, everyone who donated parts, herr_rudolf for the inspiration, all the bidders,and Steve for giving us all a place to hang out, share ideas, and enjoy the world Rat Rod Bikes.

    Before people say something they shouldn't, the winning bidder paid already and his bike will be shipped out soon.

    Just because people don't have tons of posts doesn't mean they aren't on here regularly. If all 9000 members posted daily this place would blow up...ha ha!

    Come on Dave, quit cryin in your beer! At least you got to ride it. :mrgreen: It was out of my price range, in the first 24 hours. I was hoping you would win it so I could come visit. Congrats to Tomatotocity! Hope you have as much fun with it, as I did being a part of the project. :D

    I sent the bike to it's new home in California. I'm afraid it may be an auction bike curse, they just disappear into RRB folklore. :(
