I picked up this ratty Hawthorne off Craigslist a few months back, I think the seller is a member, (speak up if it was you!) I wanted to keep it ratty, I think I've succeeded. This is the second build I've put on here, hopefully it's better recieved than the last one was. Bonus points if you know why I named it "The Answer." This is the way it was when I bought it, minus the wheels and tires, which I moved over from my Schwinn DX. I switched out the bars, and threw on some clay brick tires that I got from Chimichanga. I also threw the skiptooth chain from my DX on it, but it was a bit too short. I added a few links from a different chain, check out my "master link." I bought a chrome Nirve headlight, but it was way too modern looking, not to mention shiny. This will make a much more suitable light, don't you think? Trainmen's lantern added, bars switched out yet again. Rollfast tank purchased from eBay, it had a horn that didn't work, I replaced it with one that did. I also threw the Nirve headlight on the back as a taillight. It's still way too shiny though. Also got my Brooks saddle installed. Sexy seat. Antiqued the taillight, and threw on some red auto light repair tape. Chainguard acquired from a guy at that "other" forum. I think it's supposed to be for a Shelby? Took it to the first ever SoCal Rat Rod ride. You can see my last build behind it. (purple) Redid the taillight lens, that tape was way too crappy looking. I removed it and painted it instead. Picked up a set of ducktail fenders from Chimichanga. a little time with a cut off wheel and a rivet gun, and now it's a bobbed fender. With the chain indent and ducktail still intact. Again, way too shiny though. Antiqued the fender.
