    Re: BigDaddy Scooter "Tribute to Ed Roth/Rat Fink 'DONE' pics"

    So I spent the last day and a half finishing the scooter.Heres a Tribute to Big Daddy Ed Roth and his Rat Fink,I loved the rat since I was young and have a Rat Power tattoo on my shoulder.When I started building it I didnt think I
    would spend so many hours on it but thats how it goes...Thing has parts from the 50's to current day.Im happy with the way it turned out and it rides even better than it looks!Here are some pics,I still have to finish the head badge and get some new grips and brake lever but its pretty much DONE! :mrgreen: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm a scooter fan. I didn't expect this to turn out like it did. I thought you would "slap" some parts together and call it a scooter. Your workmanship and imagination are top notch....VERY NICE!

    $7.50?....And you sleep at night, knowing you stole them? Carefull "kickin" can be addicting. People smile when I go by, kickin with my two youngest grankids...Probably laughing after, but hey, I can't see them.

    I agree kickin is addicting,I actually slept great knowing what a deal I got and now the kids would rather ride the scooters instead of their bikes!Thanks again for the article you wrote!!! :D
